PRESS RELEASE
 
 
Dover, New York – On February 21, 2018 at approximately 8:17 p.m., the New York State Police and the Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office began receiving multiple calls concerning a Snapchat posting that was being circulated and causing alarm within the Dover Union Free School District.  
 
The Snapchat posting stated “…I heard they are suppose to shoot up both dover and new milford high school tomorrow at 12”  
 
A joint investigation with the Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office determined it was posted by a 16-year-old Dover High School student who had no malicious intent. The posting was made last evening in connection with rumors circulating about a threat of violence at the New Milford High School which is being investigated by New Milford Police Department.   
 
As a result of last night’s police investigation, it has been determined there is no known credible threat concerning any schools in the Dover Union Free School District.
