FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Suspicious Circumstance/Daybreak School Lockouts

SOUTH JORDAN, UT – February 1, 2023

Tuesday, January 31st 2023 around 1 PM, several schools in the Daybreak area were asked to place their buildings into a “lockout” procedure related to a suspicious male in the area of Daybreak Parkway and Isla Daybreak Road. The witness stated they saw an individual with a firearm, pointing it at people in the area. Our Patrol Officers, School Resource Officers, and Detectives all quickly responded to this area to address this potentially dangerous situation. The purpose of the school lockout requests were purely a protective measure in the event this situation became mobile. It was later determined, and confirmed with the witness, they mistook an individual with a camera and tripod as having a firearm.

We want to express our appreciation of our partnership with the Jordan School District, their quick response to this situation, and their trust in the South Jordan Police Department to help keep everyone safe.
