Lockers at Seattle South CC TEC

Our community members are vigilant. We work with them to address rare threats of harm that they encounter on the Wikimedia projects. In one such case, community members told us about a shooting threat, made against a school in the United States. We reported the user’s IP address and user agent information to the FBI, as allowed under our Privacy Policy in these circumstances. They passed the information on to local police, who identified the person who made the threat and prevented the situation from escalating.
