Rockford Police respond to creepy clown movement

Posted by wlpo on October 6, 2016

When will the clown madness stop? The Rockford Police Department is the latest police force to react to the latest fad.

The department says they have received numerous calls regarding suspicious clown sightings around the area. Rockford officers have been investigating all reports which have all turned out to be unfounded.

Rockford Police Chief Dan O’Shea released a statement saying “We appreciate the fact that leading into Halloween, people are using clowns as a fun way to celebrate. However, threats on text or social media that infringe on other people’s rights to feel safe is a crime and will be investigated.”

The clown sighting trend began in late August and in some cases has involved criminal activity.
