MSU Department of Police and Public Safety statement on false bomb threat

The Michigan State University Department of Police and Public Safety issued the following statement regarding a false bomb threat that was reported the evening of March 7, 2024:


Earlier this evening, MSU Police and Public Safety responded to a call reporting a bomb threat and weapons threat at multiple locations on campus. Based on how the call was received and other information we did not believe the threat to be credible, but we still responded appropriately. It has been confirmed by both our department and the FBI that this call was a hoax. There is NO danger or threat to the community.

Out of an abundance of caution, MSU police officers immediately responded to the locations that were mentioned. We appreciate the quick response of our officers and assisting agencies in determining that this call was a hoax. Again, there is NO threat or danger to the community.
