TAYLOR MILL, KY (FOX19) -

Police officers will be patrolling at Scott High School Tuesday following threats made via social media.

Jess Dykes, with Kenton County Schools, said the threats were made on the app Snapchat. The threats referenced shootings, bombings and kidnappings.

The threats have been happening since Monday and are not believed to be credible. 

 "I don't know if they think it's funny, or if they're just trying to bully the school.  Whatever their motivation may be, they need to realize that they're facing some very serious punishment if they continue this conduct," Kenton Co. Commonwealth Attorney Rob Sanders said. 

Taylor Mill Police are investigating and plan to prosecute the person or persons responsible.

Additional law enforcement officers will be on campus throughout the day as a precaution. 

If you have any information on who is responsible for making those threats, call Kenton County police.
