Bomb Threat "All Clear" at Davie JCC School

Davie Police rule the David Posnack JCC "all clear" after investigating a bomb threat which evacuated the day school Monday morning. 

Students and staff were evacuated from the South Florida Jewish Day School after the front office received a bomb threat call in which a female voice (that appeared to be electronically altered) said a bomb would go off at the school anywhere between 10 minutes and 3 hours.

Police, explosive K-9 units, and other authorities were on scene after the evacuation that took place just after 10 a.m. After investigating on-scene for over two hours, Davie Police found nothing and ruled the threat not credible. 

The threat also came at the same time that state U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz held a news conference alongside Broward County Sheriff's Office Undersecretary, Col. Steve Kinsey to address anti-Semitism both locally and nation-wide.

The David Posnack JCC in Davie is one of many Jewish community establishments across the nation to receive such a threat. Reports claim that up to 10 other Jewish Community Centers in the U.S. received threats this morning alone. 

Over the past few weeks, bomb threats have forced evacuations at South Florida JCC locations in Miami Beach, Pinecrest, Kendall, and Palm Beach Gardens.
