Tackling a growing problem. Local law enforcement and educators met for a cyber bullying 101 seminar as a part of Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine's family and children first initiative.
All of Ohio is participating in the initiative and those from South Eastern Ohio met at Washington State Community College learning where problems lie in the cyber world.
Attorney General DeWine Representatives say they pulled in everyone who deals with the children and families, trying to address the the problem on every level.
"We have a lot of kids every day being bullied on line or in school and it can lead to very devastating (ending). It starts small being bullied as little as third or forth grade and then it just seems to be a progression that seems to be getting worse as the children get older. If we can address this at the younger ages the better off we seem to be," explains Eastern Ohio Regional Rep. for Attorney General DeWine's Office, Rachel Williams.
