PITTSFIELD, Mass. (NEWS10) — The Berkshire County Sheriff’s Office is helping communities in the area stop bullying.
Sheriff Thomas Bowler reminded the community of his campaign “Knockout Bullying-Be Kind Today!”
The sheriff said it’s important for bullying to be reported, so to help combat the issue, the department is setting up an e-mail hotline.
If a child is uncomfortable reporting bullying to an adult, they can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
