All Clear in Schenectady After Vague Bomb Threat


At approximately 09:04 a.m. officers from the Schenectady Police Department were dispatched to the area of 620 State St for a report of a possible bomb threat.  Once on scene, officers were directed to a note that was located on the Veeder Ave. side of the County Office Building which had a vague threat involving city buildings.  Immediately, officers began to notify both city and county buildings located inside the city. Multiple buildings were searched by officers and k-9's; each building was cleared and all are now back open for full operation.

The Schenectady Police Department would like to thank all the local agencies (New York State Police, Albany County Sheriffs, Saratoga County Sheriffs, Troy Police Department, Schenectady County Sheriffs, and the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms)  that sent resources to assist in such a large scale incident.      

The incident is currently under investigation by members of the Schenectady Police Departments' Detective Division.
