Geelong police in Australia are being called to investigate cases of cyber bullying among school-aged children just months after the term became a chargeable offense. Leading Senior Constable Robbie Noggler said he had visited more than 20 schools this year in an attempt to tell kids how to avoid trouble online. He said students at both primary and secondary schools needed to know the legal implications now involved in cyber crime.

“You hear these tragic stories about people taking their owns lives because nothing’s been done to help them out, so for young kids to be exposed to this sort of mental trauma is definitely a concern,” he said. “The message I leave with kids is if they only remember one point they must tell someone what’s going on, be it a parent or teacher or friend, because we can’t do anything to help unless we are aware.”
