WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP - Police have made an arrest in connection to a shooting threat made against a Bergen County school yesterday.

The acting superintendent of schools sent a recorded audio message to parents late last night which says the threat was "allegedly made by a student regarding potentially shooting other students later this week."

Washington Township police officers responded to the Westwood Regional High School yesterday. Police say there was no imminent threat. Authorities would not say if the person in custody is a student.

There will be an increased police presence at the school for the rest of the week.
