PLAINFIELD, Ind. (Dec. 31, 2015) – Plainfield police are making preparations for school to resume after a series of online threats put the community on edge.

In a brief update provided Thursday, police said the case remains under investigation. Detectives have received several leads and tips, and are following up on them. A tip line was created on Dec. 23.

Police said officials from the Plainfield Community School Corporation and Town of Plainfield are working with the police department to make preparations for the beginning of school on Monday, Jan. 4. Additional officers will be placed at Plainfield schools to bolster security.

Threats posted on social media earlier this month prompted additional security at a movie theater and shopping plaza in Plainfield. Plainfield and Danville schools were also shut down in the wake of the threats, which were graphic in nature and threatened violence.
