Fighting cyberbullying in schools: What law enforcement, schools and parents can do

Summary

Schools throughout the United States are facing an epidemic. While some parents might look at bullying as a part of growing up, in fact it has reached epidemic proportions across the country. More than 3.2 million students are victims of bullying each year, according to DoSomething.org, a social issues advocacy group. Every day, nearly 160,000 children miss school because they are scared of being bullied, notes the National Education Association (NEA). Bullying through the use of electronic devices (smartphones, laptops, etc.) corresponds with the dramatic rise in the use of mobile technology among young people.

The cyberbullying epidemic among students in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and other countries where students have easy access to the Internet has resulted in a number of high profile and alarming national headlines. Many of these cyberbullying incidents have seen tragic ends, including student suicides and deadly school shootings.

In this white paper, Thomson Reuters draws upon the expertise of several experts to help law enforcement, school resource officers and security officials better understand cyberbullying, related student-on-student school violence, and the measures that these professionals may employ to reduce the risk and investigate cyberbullying and school violence incidents.
