RPD Stepping Up Patrols At Local Schools After Threats Of Violence Are Potsed To TikTok

Although there’s no specific reason to believe that threats against Redding schools posted to social media are credible, Redding Police are taking them seriously. The messages posted to TikTok are warning that violence may occur Friday. The threats are not directed to any specific Redding schools and the threats are very vague. Officers will be patrolling campuses and if any direct threat is detected, school officials and parents will be notified and action will be taken. Parents are advised to talk to their children about the dangers of social media and the ramifications of sharing inaccurate information. The threats on the Chinese social media platform are not limited to Redding, but have named communities across the country.
