Greenville, Kentucky (2/26/18)- Acting on information received from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Greenville Police Department charged a juvenile with a second count of Terroristic Threatening 2nd Degree. The FBI obtained information regarding a threat to a Muhlenberg County school posted in a YouTube comment and forwarded the information with Greenville Police Department. Through a joint investigation with Muhlenberg County Schools and the FBI, Greenville Police Department was able to identify the suspect as a Muhlenberg North Middle School student. This is the same student Greenville Police charged last Wednesday for sending threatening text messages. We continue to emphasize the importance of parents educating their children about responsible social media use and monitor their online activities. Law Enforcement from local, state, and federal agencies are constantly monitoring social media and other internet sites for threats to schools. We encourage everyone to report threats and suspicious activity to law enforcement immediately. Muhlenberg County Schools and Muhlenberg County Law Enforcement will remain vigilant and we will not tolerate any threat to the safety of our schools or students.
Greenville, Kentucky (2/22/18)- Charges for Terroristic Threatening 2nd Degree are pending for a juvenile student at Muhlenberg County High School West Campus. A joint investigation between Greenville Police Department, Muhlenberg County Police, and Muhlenberg County Schools revealed the student allegedly made verbal threats toward students at the school. Terroristic Threatening 2nd Degree is a Class D Felony. We continue to encourage parents to talk to their students about appropriate behavior at school and while using social media. Muhlenberg County Schools and Muhlenberg County Law Enforcement strive to make school safety the top priority. Any threats to the safety of students will not be tolerated and criminal charges will be filed accordingly.
2/21/18- A joint investigation between Muhlenberg County Schools and Greenville Police Department resulted in two Muhlenberg North Middle students being criminally charged today. Threatening messages were posted on social media. During the investigation, two students allegedly responsible for the posts were identified. One student was charged with Disorderly Conduct 2nd Degree, a Class B Misdemeanor. Another student was charged with Terroristic Threatening 2nd Degree, a Class D Felony. Due to the age of the students, their names will not be released. Muhlenberg County Schools and law enforcement are involved in a joint effort to make student safety a top priority. We want every student to feel safe while at school. We will continue to address any viable threat and prosecute the offenders to the fullest extent of the law. We encourage parents to talk to their students on a regular basis about school safety, responsible social media use, and appropriate behavior at school. If anyone hears a verbal threat or sees a threatening or concerning message on social media, we encourage parents and students to report the information to school staff or law enforcement immediately. We discourage forwarding a threatening message on social media, as this creates potential public alarm. Anyone who sees a threat on social media and forwards the message or posts it for others to see could potentially face criminal charges for further promoting the incident.

Greenville Police Department would like to thank Superintendent Robbie Davis for his dedication to school safety by inviting first responders to a meeting at West Campus today.

(1/16/18)- Greenville Police Department has received multiple calls regarding the issuance of a state of emergency for this winter storm. The declaration of a state of emergency opens the door for federal assistance to help pay for the removal of snow and ice. It does not, however, force your workplace to close for you. This declaration authorizes the Governor to expedite state agency assistance to communities in need. It enables him to make resources immediately available to rescue or evacuate. The state of emergency declaration streamlines communication between state and local agencies, prepares the National Guard for quick deployment, activates the Kentucky Emergency Operations Center, and authorizes the Transportation Cabinet to close roads if necessary. It does not make it illegal for employers or schools to require employees or students to show up for work or school. Citizens do not need to be in fear of receiving a citation if they are caught out in such conditions. These winter conditions are dangerous and everyone should exercise extreme caution if you need to be out in the elements. Use good judgement and take necessary emergency items such as water, blankets, flashlight, and a fully charged cell phone. Taking emergency items can be essential for survival in these conditions if you become stranded. Understand it may take first responders a long time to reach you if you become stranded. Do not risk your personal safety or that of others on the roadway.
(1/16/18)- Roads are covered after several inches of snowfall overnight. Please use caution when driving this morning and avoid getting out unless absolutely necessary. Crews are working to clear the roads. Do not follow too closely behind plows and salt trucks. Give them plenty of space to safely clear the roadways.
1/13/18- Roadways in Greenville are still covered with ice and snow. Please do not get out on the roads unless it is an emergency. If you choose to drive, please carry emergency supplies with you such as, blankets, water, flashlight with extra batteries, and a fully charged cell phone.
