In the wake of Wednesday’s reports of several “swatting” calls claiming false emergencies at Minnesota schools, the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) has this reminder:

“Our See it, say it, send it app, is an app that anyone can download to their phone, and it can report suspicious information, and it was designed through grants that we’ve received to disrupt threats to our schools.”

The BCA’s Drew Evans says if you’re in an emergency situation, you should always call 9-1-1 first, then report the incident on the app.
