LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT)-Kids aboard Fayette County School buses Wednesday will see something new as they take a seat; they'll see the posters promoting bully-free schools.

"Bullying is something we deal with on a regular basis," Superintendent Tom Shelton of the Fayette County Schools system explained. "It's becoming much more prevalent now with technology in particular."

That's why Bluegrass Crimestoppers sponsored each poster listing numbers kids can call in case they're victims or witness someone else in danger. It's part of a new Crimestoppers campaign where posters will go in schools, too. The non-profit organization is funded only through donations and dedicated to assisting the police department solve crimes in the community and in schools. That's why Shelton says he welcomes these everywhere.

"This just gives us another means for our students to feel comfortable that others are wanting to hear their concerns."
