LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- On Thursday afternoon, Jefferson County Public Schools held a press conference on the Heightened Security Alert that has been declared for all JCPS schools on Friday, Jan. 8.

Dr. Michael Raisor, JCPS Director of Operations, said the threat had been received through the Louisville Metro Police tip line. He declined to elaborate further on the nature of the threat, but said that schools would be on Heightened Security Alert, meaning that security would be increased at the doors, and movement would be reduced -- both in school hallways and just outside the schools.
