Central Kentucky Man Looking to Prevent Bullying in Schools

By Lauren Forsythe | 

A Central Kentucky Police officer is making his way around schools in hopes to help stop bullying.

Scott Harvey, an officer with Nicholasville Police, started a presentation called "I Am Someone".

He stopped by Franklin-Simpson High School with hopes of stopping bullying in the school system.

He says all schools have a bullying problem of some sort.

His goal is to be the person students can talk to about bullying, if they aren't able to talk to anyone else.

Harvey says with social media, bullying is much different than it used to be.

"If they are being victimized, it's possible they are being victimized 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Where when we were in school we could take the weekend off. We could get better. We weren't connected all the time. These kids are constantly under stress and sometimes some of them are making poor decisions because of that stress," he says

His goal is to help students make a change to prevent bullying in schools and online.
