PARK CITY — Thousands of students in Salt Lake and Park Cities are learning to take the lead to prevent bullying, and they are already stepping up to support those who have been bullied.
Secondary students throughout Park City and Salt Lake City are watching the powerful documentary, "Bully," to learn how to combat a widespread problem. Park City's police chief, who will be honored Friday night for his bully prevention programs, is encouraged the problem is finally getting broad attention.
"We really need to focus on the community effort that this isn't a police problem, it's not a district problem, it affects all of us," said Park City Police Department Chief Wade Carpenter.
After an incident Thursday, school officials feel that it's already making an impact at the schools, too.
