1 Mins read

Causeway Coast and Glens Policing and Community Safety Partnership has launched a new campaign around cyber bullying.

In a joint approach with the Department of Education, it targets students in post primary schools across the Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council area.

The Cyber Safe project has been designed to act as a constant visual reminder, with local signposting helping young people affected by online bullying.

Student resources carrying the message “Sticks and stones or clicks & phones… online bullying is still wrong” have been distributed while the Department of Education will visit each school in the borough, speaking to pupils about the dangers and consequences of online bullying and other internet concerns.

The project aims to help young people who may feel isolated and vulnerable said PCSP chair, Alderman William King: “More young people have access to the internet and social media than ever before, so the potential for cyber bullying is on the increase. People affected may feel trapped and without a support network.

This project will help them to find the support they need. “It also offers a message to those involved in online bullying. It tells them that it is REAL bullying, that it is wrong and that it is being tackled by police.”
