HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

Hartford police are investigating multiple unconfirmed bomb threats at municipal addresses around the city.

Police said crime analysts are working on the investigation.

Some of the addresses among those targeted were Hartford police and fire headquarters on High Street.

Deputy Police Chief Brian Foley said the threats are consistent with previous false threats, also known as "swatting."

No evacuations have happened, but there are resources on standby.

On Wednesday, Foley said these false threats were possibly linked to an investigation in Bristol.
