Coquitlam

File # 2017-10086

Coquitlam RCMP has lifted a Hold and Secure protocol at four schools in Coquitlam.

Just after 2:00pm, police asked Baker Drive Elementary, Charles Best Secondary, Hillcrest Middle School and Children of Integrity Montessori, to go into Hold and Secure after a report of a suspicious person. At 3:15pm, Coquitlam RCMP determined that there was no threat.

We would like to thank the general public, parents, guardians and students for their patience while we confirmed the area is safe.

A Hold and Secure is initiated when an incident is occurring outside a school building but there is no immediate or active threat to students and staff.

For immediate, accurate updates in situations such as this, please check the Coquitlam RCMP website and our Twitter feed at (@cqrcmp).
