The Northeast OPP is raising awareness against bullying in our schools.
Police, in partnership with NEOFACS are visiting schools from Hearst to Cochrane to speak with students.
Staff Sergeant Baldassare Nuccio says often neither children nor parents realize the age of responsibility is 12.
He says making threats or physically bullying someone can lead to criminal charges under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
Nuccio says social media has made the Northeast OPP adjust their strategies, especially when dealing with cyber-bulling.
