Los Alamos Police Officers and Detectives have been spearheading an effort to help stop bullying behavior at the local schools and throughout the community.
On Friday evening, police were at the Reel Deal Movie Theater providing community members with free tickets to the special screening of “Bully.”
“Bully” is a documentary that brings to light the horrors of bullying, which can lead to students dropping out of school and even some victims committing suicide.
The intent of the anti-bullying effort is to show just how much bullying hurts victims and the importance of spectators taking a stand to help stop the negative behavior.
Friday’s event was sponsored by the Los Alamos Police Department, the Reel Deal Movie Theater and the anti-bullying organization: Stand for the Silent Los Alamos.
