According to Sheriff Robert Maciol, the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a reported threat of violence to the Camden Central School District. The threat being investigated was sent through a social media outlet and the name on that account is not a student in the Camden district. At this point in the investigation, the threat is believed to be related to a similar threat made towards a school in the Schenectady School District over the weekend. The Schenectady Police Department has identified a 12 year old as the person who sent that message, and are in the process of identifying others involved.

At this time the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office and the Camden School District do not believe that any students are in danger. The sheriff’s office will be continuing its investigation into the threat and will be increasing patrols in and around the school in the coming days to ensure the safety of the students.
