Intel press statement – security alert at Intel campus

Tuesday, January 13th 2015, Leixlip, Co. Kildare – Shortly after 6am this morning the Gardaí received what they believed to be a credible threat identifying Intel in Leixlip as the location of that threat. As per normal protocol Gardaí shortly thereafter coordinated a response with Intel. A controlled evacuation of the site followed and a search was conducted by trained Intel security personnel throughout the campus with the buildings being declared safe just after 8.30am.

Employees were thereafter allowed to return to work and normal activity has now resumed at the campus. Intel would like to thank the Gardaí for their support and the general public for their patience as the matter was dealt with.
