BOULDER, Colo. — A bomb threat rang out Tuesday morning at the Boulder Community Jewish Center, prompting investigation by Boulder Police Department officials. 

All those inside the center, which employs dozens of staffers and hosts programs for children ranging from newborns through teens, made it out safely, police said. 

After the evacuations, police got to work investigating the threat. After two hours of investigation, police said they found no bomb on the campus of the center.

Police haven't yet said if they have identified a suspect behind the threat. 

The Boulder Jewish Community Center is no stranger to threats. In 2015, the facility was one of several organizations to receive envelopes containing white powder. 

Dozens of Jewish centers across the nation have received bomb threats in recent weeks. The FBI reported it is investigating the string of threats.
