Bomb Threats Target Multiple Higher Education Institutions Across New Hampshire

Concord, New Hampshire – The Department of Safety is investigating reports of multiple bomb threats that appear to be targeting various colleges and universities across the State of New Hampshire.

A preliminary investigation has revealed that on Tuesday, August 2, 2022, the same phone number was used to make bomb threats to approximately 10 higher education facilities in the state. The caller, who may be from overseas, appears to be using a spoofed number.

At this time, the Department has no information to indicate any of the threats are credible. The Department is working closely with local, state, and federal law enforcement partners; and coordinating with the targeted institutions to share information.

A law enforcement investigation is underway.

Anyone who receives a bomb threat should contact law enforcement immediately.
