Airdrie RCMP would like to advise the public the police presence in Big Springs has now dispersed.

While details are scarce, RCMP did confirm that at 2:30 pm thet were called to an incident across the street from Bert Church High School and Genesis Place, as a precaution both places were placed on a "hold and secure"

When that is ordered it means the potential threat is outside so all exterior doors are locked but everything inside carries on as normal.

Shortly after at 3:12 pm it was deemed there was not a threat and the "hold and secure" was lifted. 

Airdrie RCMP would like to thank residents for their cooperation. 

More information will be provided if made available.
