CENTEX schools increase police presence due to nationwide TikTok threat


The threat is being monitored by the Department of Homeland Security. The agency tweeted that it is aware of the threats and is monitoring the situation.

"DHS is aware of public reporting that suggests possible threats to schools on December 17, 2021. DHS does not have any information indicating any specific, credible threats to schools but recommends communities remain alert," DHS wrote on Twitter.

TikTok issued a statement saying it has found no evidence of the threats spreading on the social media platform.

"We handle even rumored threats with utmost seriousness, which is why we're working with law enforcement to look into warnings about potential violence at schools even though we have not found evidence of such threats originating or spreading via TikTok," the statement said.
