Wray and Idalia Schools Closed Due to Threat

Both schools in Wray and Idalia have been cancelled today due to an anonymously posted veiled threat on a smartphone app called Yik Yak. Law enforcement is working with both school staffs to do everything that can be done to keep students safe. Other area schools are aware of the situation and taking proper precautions as well. The city of Wray Police Department was the originating agency last night, and we will share any updates they make.

On Wednesday February 18, 2015, the Wray Police Department was made aware of a potential threat on YIK YAK (an app which allows the user to send messages anonymously within a certain geographical area) to the Wray School District staff and students. The School Administrators were contacted by the Wray Police Department and made aware of the situation. While we have no credible evidence to pinpoint a specific location or people targeted, we at the Wray Police Department take statements like the ones posted on YIK YAK seriously and as such a thorough search is being conducted and an active investigation is ongoing at this time.

County Sheriff’s Of Colorado Address Letter to Governor; Express Continued Concerns About Gun Control

Sheriff Day is an officer on the executive board of directors for County Sheriffs of Colorado. The organization hand delivered this letter to Governor Hickenlooper last Thursday.  The letter asked for a meeting with the Governor to discuss solutions to the problems that the three gun control bills from the 2013 legislative session didn’t fix or address, and possible real solutions to those issues. Let’s hope the governor takes advantage of the law enforcement and public safety experts that have been duly elected in the state to discuss these problems and solutions to it.
