Police Chief Rodney Monroe Encourages Charlotte Youth To ‘Stand Up Speak Out’ Against Bullying
Charlotte-Mecklenburg’s Police Chief Rodney Monroe stopped by the CBS Radio studios to talk with Public Relations host Francene Marie about the implications of bullying in our schools and neighborhoods.
By partnering with CMS Schools, CBS Radio created the “Stand Up Speak Out” program in 2012 to teach kids (and their families) how bullying is ruining lives and affects how a kid acts in public.
Kids from Charlotte’s elementary, middle, and high schools signed pledges to end bullying, and we had over 8,000 pledges from students and staff members sign them in order to stop bullying and earn the CBS Radio pep rally.
Watch the video above to hear why Monroe thinks bullying is starting in the first place, and how cyber-bullying is becoming more and more prevalent with our kids.
