Youth Parliment Members Raise Concern Over Cyber Bullying
10:41am 19th August 2013
Members of Dorset's Youth Parliament have been putting their concerns about cyber bullying to the county's Police and Crime Commissioner.
Martyn Underhill has met with 5 members of the Youth Parliament at the Police Headquarters at Winfrith.
The two and a half hour discussion also focused on exam stress.
They're planning a Stress Less Day for students and teachers in Dorset to help them spot the signs of exam stress.
Mr Underhill said: "I am delighted to have met the members of Dorset Youth Parliament. I believe strongly in young people having the chance to express themselves. Cyber-bullying was a key concern for the members at today's meeting. I told them that it is vital that young people confide in someone if they are being bullied online. We must all work together on identifying and intercepting problems early on, before they become a crisis."
The representatives of Dorset Youth Parliament also visited the Firearms department and the Force control room on their visit to Dorset Police HQ, Winfrith.
