DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) - Dothan City School and Dothan Police Department are jointly investigating a threat regarding Dothan Preparatory Academy.

There will be a heightened presence of law enforcement at Dothan Prep on Friday, December 2, 2022.

In a Facebook post, Dothan Prep remarked, “We want to assure our families that we take any type of threat seriously and have the full cooperation of the police department.
