Fayetteville police receive 60 threats against officers
FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) – The police department in Fayetteville says it has received more than 60 threats against law enforcement officers in less than a day.
A news release said the threats came over a six-hour period Friday. None was deemed credible.
The department urged people who are upset about recent violence around the country to approach them in a constructive manner to discuss how they can serve.
Lt. Todd Joyce, a department spokesman, said by phone that no arrests have been made and declined to elaborate about what was contained in the threats.
The city of about 200,000 people is about an hour south of the state capital of Raleigh.
