Swatting Reports Are Up in Kentucky

Swatting reports are up in Kentucky. Lexington Police and Officers in Bath Co responded to two calls yesterday afternoon that turned out to be false reports. The calls are being investigated as swatting. Swatting is a criminal harassment tactic of deceiving an emergency service (via such means as hoaxing an emergency services dispatcher) into sending a police or emergency service response team to another person’s address. This is triggered by false reporting of a serious law enforcement emergency, such as a bomb threat, murder, hostage situation, or a false report of a mental health emergency, such as reporting that a person is allegedly suicidal or homicidal and may or may not be armed, among other things. At least four swatting calls have happened in Morehead in the last two days.
