After threatening messages went viral on social media warning of a mass shooting targeting Lubbock-area schools, Lubbock law enforcement may increase its presence at area schools. The viral messages in Lubbock sound similar to those that have circulated in other parts of Texas and even the country. Still, authorities don't want to take any chances.

According to KAMC, Lubbock Cooper ISD informed some that Lubbock Police and Lubbock County Sheriffs Deputies may be deployed to area schools.

According to information released by Lubbock Cooper ISD, the Lubbock Police Department and the Lubbock County Sheriff’s Office may be dispatching officers to serve as an additional presence of schools in the Lubbock area through the remainder of the school year.

This is in addition to the police officers that are already stationed at each campus.

So parents, if you see an increase in law enforcement at your child's school during the rest of the school year, know that the district and the police are working together to make sure the campus is as safe as can be.
