An Illinois State University (ISU) bomb threat, which was found inside of a bathroom in Schroeder Hall, is being taken very seriously. The ISU administration will continue classes but increase security. According to The Inquisitr on August 21, 2013, extra measures will be taken to ensure safety.
Access to the building is being restricted, all bags will be checked, and the police will be using special-trained dogs to sniff for explosives.
The FBI was contacted about the ISU bomb threat as a precaution. The note stated that a bomb would be placed inside of the Hall. Further details were not made available due to an ongoing police investigation according to school administrators. The police are considering this to be a low or medium threat at best.
Due to the ISU bomb threat, security teams will be using bomb-sniffing dogs and making periodic sweeps of the building. Backpacks, briefcases and bags will be checked. Classes will continue and the administration hopes that disruptions or inconveniences will be kept to a minimum. Anyone who sees something suspicious is asked to call ISU police at 309-438-8631.
