Pontiac, MI – With threats disrupting schools across Oakland County, Sheriff Michael Bouchard made a social media video addressing students. “We need you to be part of us keeping you safe,” he said. He urged students to tell an adult if they see something they think is not right. “You will be more likely to see or hear it than the police department” he said.
Sheriff Bouchard also said “We have been inundated with threats across the county,” and that “Every threat will be investigated. Every threat will be presented to the Prosecutor.”
“Any threat is a crime… It terrorizes people. It causes anxiety and fear.”
