Prevention Programs & Initiatives

Bullying & Cyber Bullying

Massachusetts has a variety of laws designed to punish those engaged in acts of bullying, whether communicated verbally, physically, through gestures, in writing or over the internet.  These crimes range from assault and stalking to criminal harassment and identity theft.  Offenders can be classmates, co-workers, or estranged family members.   

Bullying and cyber bullying can escalate and have tragic results, particularly in school and work environments.  Our office, in conjunction with our prevention and intervention partner, Middlesex Partnerships for Youth, takes an active role in training students, parents, educators and administrators about how to recognize and prevent bullying.  We also offer Workplace Violence Prevention education and training programs.
