At approximately 7:30 a.m. this morning, a threat was made against Bear Creek Secondary School in Barrie. Barrie Police, in collaboration with school administration, responded to the location and through their investigation were able to determine that the threat was unfounded. The lockdown was lifted shortly before 8:00 a.m.
A short time later, just after 9:00 a.m., this morning, Barrie Police received information regarding a suspicious person in the area of Georgian College. Officers attended the scene and were able to determine that there was no threat to the college or any other location. The person was later located and it was confirmed that there was no threat to public safety.
The two occurrences are not related, and all lockdowns have since been lifted.
