This winter, Park City Police watch logs have reflected a number of incidents where police have interacted with people experiencing homelessness at transit centers or outside of businesses. Park City Police Capt. Phil Kirk says that doesn’t mean there are more homeless individuals—they’re probably just more visible.

Kirk says homelessness has become more of a year-round issue in Park City. Police will often see people camping during the summer, but the cold winter has likely brought people into town seeking warmer shelters.

Several bomb threats were made via email throughout the U.S. including threats in Park City and Wasatch County. After some searching and discussions with other agencies law enforcement officials have determined that the threat is illegitimate.

Park City Police Chief Wade Carpenter said they first received word of a threat this morning to a business near Prospector Square, Heber City Offices also received a threat, as did a business in the Silver Creek Busines. Chief Carpenter said they’ve determined the threat as a hoax.
