Good Morning Columbia Falls Residents, There is a public meeting at the Junior High at 6:00 pm tonight to discuss the Sheriff's Department and a new jail moving to the current Cedar Palace location. This is the opportune time to ask questions, voice your opinion, or just learn more about this proposal. We are all busy because of the recent threats and cyber terrorism, but this is an important decision facing our community. Our Department and City officials will be on site to learn more as well. We look forward to seeing you there. Chief Clint Peters

I once again wanted to reach out and say how proud I am of this community for standing together and supporting one another during this difficult time. I am constantly amazed at the resolve, determination and pride Columbia Falls has shown throughout this ordeal. I could not be more proud to serve this unbelievable community. As we do take those steps forward, I want to remind everyone that these people are out there and still are threatening to release the hacked information from our school system. There have already been reports to my office of suspicious phone calls, emails, and solicitation in an attempt to gather banking account and credit card information. Please be cognizant of what emails you are opening, what information you are giving out on the phone, and what information you are providing to anyone electronically. Now is the time to secure your open wifi networks, strengthen your digital passwords, and monitor your bank accounts and credit information. If you do have a breach of personal information, please contact this office. We most likely will not know how many of these incidents are directly related or happenstance but it is important that you notify us of these breaches as soon as possible. Also, if your banking information is compromised contact your banking facility immediately. We do not have a rash of incidents at this time and this is just a reminder that you can protect personal information that has not already been compromised. To report an incident, please contact our office (406) 892-3234 and select option #1 to speak with a dispatcher. Chief Peters

Good Morning, An informational meeting for parents in the Columbia Falls School District will be held at Columbia Falls High School at 12:00 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. School administration and the Chief of Police will be available for questions. Thank you.

Early this morning we received information about an Instagram account that referenced Columbia Falls student's personal search history. We were able to track these individuals to a local address and confirmed it was a poorly timed prank by Columbia Falls students. This caused the initial cancellation of the teachers entering our schools. Once we confirmed it was a prank, we sent a message to teachers notifying them that it is in fact safe to enter the schools. We profusely apologize for any further stress this had on our community. We are continuing to put citizen safety as our paramount concern and we will keep everyone posted on any changes or further threats. Thank you for your support.

Families and students of Columbia Falls School District: The cyber terrorist who has been spreading fear and panic in our community through text message and email threats against our school has now stooped to the low level of texting parents and students in hopes to continue his barrage of digital fear mongering. This person was able to hack into the School District #6 server where he gained access to phone numbers of staff, parents and students. Let me assure you there is no immediate threat to you or our community. This person is only trying to gain power and self satisfaction through fear and intimidation. If you receive a text from a phone number that you do not recognize please do not engage in conversation or try to respond. Instead, please contact the Columbia Falls Police Department at (406) 892-3234 and press 1 for dispatch to report the incident. Our law enforcement agencies are remaining vigilant, proactive, and investigating each of these threats as leads. As I stated before, this community is strong and resilient and will not let this person paralyze our community with his digital threats. Stay strong Columbia Falls we will get through this together. Columbia Fall Police Chief Clint Peters
