Classes are set to resume on a normal schedule tomorrow (Tuesday, Dec. 3) after a bomb scare caused the evacuation of all three campuses of Atlantic Cape Community College Monday.

The campuses were evacuated as a precaution Monday afternoon after a bomb threat was reported at about 3 p.m., according to the Township of Hamilton Police Department, which responded to the Mays Landing campus.

Bomb-sniffing dogs from the Township of Hamilton police, Richard Stockton College police, Camden County Sheriff, Gloucester County Sheriff, New Jersey State Police and the Atlantic City police were used to search the campuses and they have been deemed safe, police said.

The initial investigation took about 3½ hours, police said. The investigation is being handled by Township of Hamilton Police Detective Michael Robison.

The closure announcement was reported on the college’s Facebook page at 3:34 p.m. Monday, Dec. 2. By about 7 p.m. the page had better news to report:

“All Atlantic Cape campuses will be open and resume normal class schedule for Tuesday, Dec. 3. All students should report for their scheduled classes.”

The college campuses are located in Mays Landing, 5100 Black Horse Pike; Atlantic City, 1535 Bacharach Blvd.; and Middle Township, 341 Court House-South Dennis Road, Cape May Court House.
