15-year-old makes threat on Snapchat to Waupun High School

At about 12:28 AM on Tuesday, April 18 the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office received a report from a City of Waupun Police Officer of a threat to the Waupun High School via Snapchat. The threat was made by a 15-year-old who lives in the Waupun School District within Dodge County.

An investigation into the incident immediately took place and it was determined that a threat did take place, but the means to carry out the threat was not substantiated. The 15-year-old was located at home and interviewed. 

Consultation took place with Dodge County Human Services and the Dodge County District Attorney’s Office and appropriate actions are being taken to ensure the safety of the public. The Waupun School District at this time has restricted the 15-year-old from attending school and is not allowed on school grounds until further notice.
