Due to an unconfirmed, anonymous threat made to schools in several Rhode Island communities, including Warwick, yesterday Mayor Scott Avedisian directed Colonel Stephen McCartney to post police personnel at all of the City’s public, private and parochial schools for the remainder of the week. Mayor Avedisian, Colonel McCartney and Warwick Public Schools Superintendent Richard D’Agostino have been closely monitoring the situation. Avedisian and D’Agostino have been visiting schools throughout the day and will continue to do so throughout the week.  The Police Department is working with other law enforcement agencies to investigate this matter and provide the absolute safest and secure environment for our children.
