The Summit County Sheriff’s Office says it’s taking a “zero tolerance” approach to threats made against schools.

“The Summit County Sheriff’s Office [treats] all of these incidents seriously and we really don’t care if the person making the threat considers them a joke, doesn’t have the means of completing the act, or ‘didn’t mean any harm’ or are ‘just venting,’ ” the office posted Sunday in a message on its Facebook page. “It will be investigated to the fullest extent and the person responsible prosecuted.”

The message comes following a wave of threats and arrests in the Akron area following a recent mass shooting at a Florida school.

Stark County Sheriff George Maier also penned a lengthy open letter to the community on Facebook on Sunday, saying that those who make threats will be held responsible to “the full extent of the law.”

He encouraged parents to take action.

“Talk to your children,” Maier wrote. “Ask them questions and engage with them. Remind them of the dangers associated with social media and how to use it properly, and always let them know you’re listening.”

He ended his letter with: “Evil prevails when good men do nothing.”
