Libby Police Department News

MEDIA RELEASE On the afternoon of October 4, 2018, The Libby Police Department was notified by the Libby School District of a threat of violence that was written on the wall of a boy’s restroom stall. Libby PD immediately implemented extra security for Friday’s homecoming game and Saturday’s homecoming dance while the threat was being assessed. The Libby Police Department is conducting the investigation in conjunction with the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office with additional resources provided by the Montana Division of Criminal Investigation and the FBI. The investigation and threat assessment have indicated that there is no danger to the community and that this was a successful attempt by a small group of students to disrupt the school. The investigation will continue until all those that participated have been charged. The Libby Police Department will continue to maintain a presence at Libby schools for the remainder of the week at the request of the school district.
