GREENFIELD, Calif. (KION) Greenfield police and other local law enforcement agencies have increased their presence on the campus of Vista Verde Middle School and the surrounding area in response to threats.

Police said the Greenfield Union School District reported the threats made by an anonymous source on the Stop It app late Thursday evening. Officers said the threats were "serious in nature" and directed at the school and its staff.

Police began investigating the threats, but because they were anonymous, they could not determine the validity.

District staff and police worked together to create a security plan and law enforcement has increased its presence. That will continue until the end of the school day.

Police said there have not been any reported incidents at the school, but that they take all threats of violence seriously, even if they are not deemed credible.

Anyone with information about the identity of the person or persons making the threats is asked to call Greenfield police at 831-674-5111.
