Sheriff Myers touts anti-bullying effort

Bartholomew County Sheriff Matt Myers is asking local children to join him in the fight against bullying.

“If parents, school staff and other adults in our community talk to kids about bullying, bullying behavior can be stopped over time,” said Sheriff Myers. “Kids need safe environments and we need to create a county-wide bullying prevention strategy.”

Sheriff Myers is asking kids in Bartholomew County to “speak up” …” reach out” …and “be a friend” by signing an “Anti-Bullying Contract” and returning a copy to him.

These contracts will soon be available for downloading from the Sheriff’s Department website. Deputies will also be carrying contracts in their patrol cars.
