Peel Police Launches Cyberbullying Campaign
Peel – Peel Regional Police Crime Prevention Services is launching their anti-bullying campaign entitled “What If Everyone Did Something” to stop cyberbullying with their school board partners during the “Bullying Prevention Week”. The launch will take place on Wednesday, November 23rd, 2016, at 9:30 a.m., at St. Francis Xavier Secondary School, located at 50 Bristol Road W, Mississauga.
For the fifth consecutive year, Crime Prevention Services has partnered with the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board and the Peel District School Board to launch their Anti-Cyberbullying Poster/Video Competition in all high schools in the Region of Peel. Representatives from each of the partners will be present to address the issue of cyberbullying.
The campaign will invite all high school students in the Region of Peel to submit a video, or a poster, to help educate the public about cyberbullying. Finalists will be invited to attend a Gala, where the top submissions will be showcased and the winners announced. The winning submissions will be used to advertise the anti-cyberbullying campaign throughout the Region of Peel. The two winning videos, one from each school board, will also be used as trailers at Cineplex theatres. It is anticipated that the winning poster will be displayed in Mississauga and Brampton transit buses in the summer of 2017.
