Santa Fe College Will Reopen Wednesday

Press release from Santa Fe College

At 3:22 p.m. Tuesday afternoon, Santa Fe College received two non-specific anonymous bomb threat phone calls to the Contact Center on SF’s Northwest Campus. Upon the report to police, the investigation began immediately. The calls were preliminarily evaluated for details, and the SFPD coordinated with college staff to check locations. No device was found. College officials do not believe the threat was credible, nor do they believe there was any suspicious device on SF property. 

The college made the decision to close for the evening to allow the investigation to continue on an empty campus. The college will open for all classes and normal business activities Wednesday morning. 

The investigation is continuing in coordination with law enforcement partners, and authorities are taking the matter seriously, especially in light of several recent well-publicized threats, both in an area public school and in a neighboring county. 

College officials want to make sure the community is aware of the college’s Safety and Risk Management webpage, which includes valuable information. There is also an informational video as to what you should do in the event of a Bomb Threat, and the college’s Bomb Threat Call Procedures form

Anyone who may have any information should call the SFPD at 352-395-5519, or in an emergency, call 911.
