Other Michiana counties stepping up patrols at schools

Other Michiana counties are stepping up security in the classroom in light of the recent threat to kill 20 local students on April 15.

The LaGrange County Sheriff's Department says there will be increased patrols and a greater police presence at schools across the county, both before, during and after that date.

Officials say it's just a precautionary measure, and that it's very important for parents not to overreact, since there are no specific threats against LaGrange County Schools.

The anonymous written threat was discovered some three months ago at the Elkhart License Branch, and said the killings would take place at five different schools in Elkhart and St. Joseph Counties.

Wednesday Elkhart County Sheriff Brad Rogers went public with his opinion that the threat is simply not credible.

He said police will increase their presence around schools on Monday, but that the situation did not warrant a lot of additional manpower.
