BATON ROUGE, LA — Lots of people are going pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but October is also National Bullying Prevention Month.
The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office is committed to stopping the bullying trend.
The law organization has recently come out with a new anti-bullying PSA.
EBRSO deputies already are in local schools, visit with students and teaching them not to tease or pick on their classmates.
National statistics show that one in seven students in Kindergarten through 12th grade is either a bully or a victim of bullying.
Also, 90 percent of 4th through 8th graders reported being victims of bullying.
