• Police: shooter threats at PGHS

    Since March 1, person(s) left several written threats at the Pacific Grove High School campus. Since that time, PGPD investigators and the School Resource Officer are working closely with school staff and students to identify the culprit(s). The information we have include: the threats were found in girl locker and bathrooms; the threats were reported to law enforcement on March 1st, 5th and 7th; investigators have interviewed numerous students and staff; reviewed 24 hours of surveillance video that revealed numerous students near or accessing the locations where the threats were left; and investigators continue to conduct interviews with potential witnesses. Our investigators have notified the FBI and other Monterey County law enforcement agencies.

    Our priorities are to identify the person(s) responsible, and evaluate security and preparedness. Police and Pacific Grove Unified School District administrators met and reviewed safety protocols, attended and continue to attend faculty meetings to discuss campus safety and the investigation, and increased police presence on the campus.

    We are aware the threats have many students, staff and parents fearful. We are hopeful that sharing this information will assist investigators with identifying and apprehending those responsible for the threats on school campus. Chief Christey said, “Police and school staff are doing all that they can to track down the culprits and restore the sense of safety and security at the high school. If you are the person who is doing this, please come forward so we can put an end to this. These cases are being investigated as felony terrorist threats and we ask anyone who has information that will help us, please contact the police department as soon as possible.”
