EVARTS, Ky. (AP) - A small eastern Kentucky police department is doing its part to stop bullying before it starts.
Officers in the Harlan County town of Evarts have begun visiting schools to talk to children about the dangers of bullying and what to do if they are victims.
The Harlan Daily Enterprise reports (http://bit.ly/Qly6dK) they began the program last week with a visit to Evarts Elementary School.
Officers John Teagle and William Clogston say they also wanted children to think of police as friends.
They say they plan more programs for older children, including ones that deal with cyberbullying and synthetic drugs.
