ALBEMARLE COUNTY, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- A juvenile has been charged following a threat that was made over social media.

The Albemarle County Police Department reports the threat targeted Western Albemarle High School.

It was reported early Friday morning, and after investigating, officers determined that the threat was not credible.

The juvenile has been charged with making threats of death or bodily injury to a person or member of his family; threats of death or bodily injury to persons on school property; threats of death or bodily injury to health care providers.

CPD says any such threats are taken seriously and the department will work with Albemarle County Public Schools, parents, students, teachers and staff in order to keep everyone safe.

Additionally, the department reminds families to review online and social media safety tips.

These include monitoring a child’s phone, computer and online accounts regularly, and parents should have access to all of these.

Parents should talk to their children about the use of cell phones during school, which should be reserved for emergencies.

If a child sees a threat on social media, in a text or on an Internet site, they should immediately notify school administrators and the police.

CPD also urges people to not share online threats with their friends or repost in any form online.
