Saginaw Police take anti-bullying message to the classroom

Posted: Updated:
SAGINAW (WJRT) -

(10/23/12) - Saginaw police are tackling bullying one school at a time. Tuesday, officers went to Herig Elementary to talk to fifth graders about the danger bullying creates.

Police say their anti-bullying program gives students an opportunity to ask questions, and to get know them in a friendly environment. They believe it's important to build relationships with the kids while they are still young, and to explain to them the consequences of bullying.

Students learned how to identify a bully, what to do to stop a bully, and how to help others who might be in trouble because of a bully.
    
Saginaw police say this is the second year they've gone into classrooms to talk with students. They believe the program is making a difference.

The lesson won't stop at Herig Elementary. Police will continue to take their message to other classrooms in schools across the city in an effort to stop the cycle of bullying.
