Mayor William E. Cooper Tuesday commended the Enterprise Police Department and Enterprise City Schools for keeping students safe following a report of an active shooter at the high school.
The Enterprise Police Department said the report turned out to be false. All city schools were locked down as a precautionary measure and officers were deployed to each school to assure safety.
“Thankfully, this turned out to be a false report,” Mayor Cooper said. “I want to recognize the swift actions of the School Resource Officer, Officer Keith Lindley, who was on campus when the call came in, the Enterprise Police Department and other first responders for quickly getting to the scene and securing the area.
I also want to recognize Enterprise High School’s administration for the quick response of putting the campus in lockdown to ensure the safety of the students.
Thank you also to the various law enforcement agencies that assisted, including ALEA/SBI and the Coffee County Sheriff’s Office.
Again, we are fortunate that this was a false report, but we are so thankful that our first responders are well-trained and prepared for this type of emergency. We are proud of our first responders and the professionalism they show every day.”
