SUMMIT COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE RESPONDS TO SAFE2TELL TIPS
SUMMIT COUNTY, CO – At approximately 6:10 p.m. on December 12, 2018 the Summit County Sheriff’s Office and the Summit School District received several 911 and Safe2Tell tips regarding a concern for school safety at Summit High School. Deputies immediately responded and are continuing to investigate the tips.
As a precautionary measure, the Sheriff’s Office had an increased law enforcement presence at Summit High School on the morning of December 13, 2018 as students arrived for the day and will continue to have an increased presence throughout the day.
Sheriff Jaime FitzSimons stated, “The Summit County Sheriff’s Office takes all threats to the community seriously. At this time, we have no reason to believe that there is a security or safety risk to students or Summit High School. I encourage families to continue to talk with their children about safety and the importance about reporting any concerns promptly to parents, school officials, law enforcement or Safe2Tell Colorado, as in this case.” Sheriff FitzSimons believes that community safety comes from communication, vigilance and education and that we all share in the responsibility to be part of the solution.
