3/23/2007 Lockdown:

See some emails from readers below, and note that the High School just evoked early dismissal as a result (not sure.. but why the HS?)

Hi Hoboken411:

Just heard that there was a school lockdown in Hoboken about two hours ago that was instigated by the HPD as a result of a non-custodial parent at the Wallace School trying to abduct their child from the playground.

Scary stuff. It is my understanding that all the schools in Hoboken were ordered into a lockdown but that everything is fine now. Nice to know they had a procedure in place and that it worked well.

Pretty newsworthy and scary. Thought you ought to know. You may have already heard of it on your police scanner.

Keep up the good work! Hoboken loves Hoboken411!

And earlier (when I was dealing with lawyers…)


The Hoboken Schools were on lockdown today. Very scary!! Did you hear anything on the scanner?
