Aledo ISD Police Chief Chawn Gilliland announced today that Aledo ISD Police took into custody today one juvenile student for allegedly making terroristic threats towards fellow students at the Don R. Daniel Ninth Grade Center in Aledo.
The Aledo ISD Police Department, following an investigation initiated by campus administrators, uncovered additional evidence leading to the student's detention and transport to a juvenile detention center. Although numerous rumors and suspicions have been reported to the school administration and police department in the prior week, this is the only incident which police detectives believed had credible evidence to support detaining a student.
Gilliland said the Aledo ISD Police Department along with Aledo ISD staff are committed to thoroughly investigating each and every threat against students and property.
"Our goal is to ensure all students and staff are in a safe environment," Gilliland said. "Good communication between students, parents and staff, along with prompt, in-depth investigations are key to assessing threats and taking appropriate and preventative action."
