Fort St. John RCMP were at North Peace Secondary School this afternoon responding to a complaint brought forward by a student. The school, along with Robert Ogilvie Elementary was put into a “secure and hold” for student safety, however shortly after police arrived it was determined the complaint was false.

Once it was determined there was no risk to students at either school the secure and hold was lifted.

In a release Sergeant Steve Perret of the Fort St. John RCMP said that the safety of students was not at risk at any point this afternoon, and he added that while no charges will be laid in this particular case, issuing false complaints or leading police to continue on an investigation knowing the situation is false is a crime.
