The Mansfield Township Police Department is aware of social media posts circulating on TikTok concerning a potential school shooting on Friday, December 17th. At this time, the Mansfield Township Police Department has been in contact with State and County partners who have assessed the threat and made us aware that there is no credible information to suggest this threat is specific to any of the schools in our township or any school in New Jersey. Furthermore, we will continue to monitor the situation and will communicate all relevant information to the schools.
Our department, along with the school administration of the local and regional districts, are committed to the safety and well being of all the students and staff. If you see anything of concern, please report it immediately to the police.
