File # 2017-10086
Coquitlam RCMP has asked four local schools to Hold and Secure due to a police incident in the area.
A report of a suspicious person came in to the area of Baker Drive Elementary, 885 Baker Drive, Coquitlam, at around 2:00pm. Out of an abundance of caution, Baker Drive Elementary, and nearby Charles Best Secondary, Children of Integrity Montessori and Hillcrest Middle School have been asked to Hold and Secure.
Police are currently on scene working with School District 43 staff and administrators to ensure the safety of the school population and the security of the surrounding area.
The general public, including parents or guardians of students, are asked to avoid the area.
A Hold and Secure is initiated when an incident is occurring outside a school building when there is no immediate or active threat to students and staff.
When more information is available, updates will be posted to the Coquitlam RCMP website and tweeted from the Coquitlam RCMP handle (@cqrcmp).
