Early this morning, the CSU Police Department received notice from the FBI of a non-eminent threat that came through the Internet Complaint Center at FBI headquarters.

CSU spokesman Brad Bohlander said the threat was not considered dangerous, though the public safety team was pulled together and is in the midst of an on-going investigation.

“Past threats have been much more specific than this, but I don’t recall anything of this nature in recent history,” Bohlander said.

Bohlander also said that, while the police have not released the details of the threat, there is no reason to believe it is related to any particular student.

The Internet Complaint Center is a partnership between the FBI and the National White Collar Crime Center to serve as a vehicle to receive, develop and refer criminal complaints regarding cyber crime to appropriate authorities.

The threat was not deemed substantial enough to impact goings-on at the university, though campus authorities warn the community to stay vigilant. A text message and e-mail was sent to the campus community to warn them of the situation.

No further information regarding the nature of the threat is available at this time.
