GLEN ROCK, N.J. — The Glen Rock police are investigating a threatening 9-1-1 call that came in Saturday morning, authorities said.

Around 9:20 a.m., an operator at the Northwest Bergen Central Dispatch received a suspicious phone call on the non-emergency Glen Rock Police phone line, Chief Dean Ackermann said.

The threat was not specific in nature and credibility could not be determined. The origin of the call could not be immediately identified, police said.

A thorough check was conducted of all public and private schools in Glen Rock as well as all other municipal facilities, and no hazard of any nature was detected, according to Ackermann.
