On Friday (Dec. 2), Battle Ground Police became aware of an apparent threat of gun violence at Battle Ground High School for a specific date and time.  Officers immediately began the investigation, working closely with the Battle Ground School District.  After exhausting every investigative lead, including engaging partner law enforcement agencies, investigators were unable to identify the source or credibility of the threat. 

As a precautionary measure there was an increased police and security presence at the high school on Monday (Dec. 5) as the investigation continued.  The case is currently suspended until further information is developed.

“As always, we take every threat seriously, particularly when they involve schools”, said Chief Mike Fort. “We have no reason to suspect this is a continual or on-going threat.  We would like to thank everyone who provided information in this case.” 

The Battle Ground Police Department and the School District maintain a longstanding partnership, most notably through our School Resource Officer Program.  We will continue to work closely together for the safety of our students and educators.
