Why police are at West Seattle High School

That’s part of the police presence at West Seattle High School following investigation of a threat that is not believed to be credible, according to a letter just sent to families by WSHS principal Brian Vance. Thanks to the parent who forwarded it to us – you can see it here (PDF). Vance writes that the threat was reported by a student who said it was a specific threat toward her, and adds, “Although the phone message does not appear to be a credible threat, we will continue to have extra SPD and District Security on campus.”

      The bus in our photo is usually used as transportation for the bicycle squad (often seen at Alki, for example, or Westwood/Roxhill, or The Junction). There was also one regular SPD car nearby when we passed through.
