Programs Aimed At Stopping Bullying

"Bullying Stops Here, Bullying Stops Now." That's the message school officials across the east are trying to teach children this month dedicated to crime prevention.

At Bethel School on Tuesday many students got the opportunity to attend an assembly where they learned what to do if they're bullied, and also how to act if they are the ones being a bully.

Second grade teacher Diana Wright says the anti-bullying message is an important one. "I think we've always had bullying and we always will, but the more children standup for themselves and treat others fairly then the less of a problem it will be."

Several schools across the east will be having similar programs all month long to talk about bullying and other topics of crime prevention.
