Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office takes on school bullying head-on

 

Montgomery County Sheriff's Office - MCSOMontgomery County, TN – Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office School Resource Officer Jayme DeLaRosa has only been an elementary school SRO for a year and a half, but has already taken a stand against bullying.

She wanted to carry on the original program of “Girls Night Out” for boys and girls when one of the guidance counselors left at the end of last year.

“Last year, I saw the guidance counselor do a presentation for all grade levels of girls in our school,” DeLaRosa said. “She left, and I wanted to tweak the program to include boys. I also wanted to have just fourth and fifth grade age levels so we could use age appropriate real life scenarios for role-playing. I wanted them to be able to interact between the two grade levels and be excited about learning about the subject of bullying.”

Jayme DeLaRosa speaks to children in the anti-bullying program.
