CT Bullyproofing Prevention I have been involved in bullying prevention presentations since 2012 and was recognized by CT Senator Chris Murphy in 2013. As a Stamford Police Officer, I started the Bullyproofing back up again this year by completing my 13th tour/presentation at Westhill High School where I spoke to the 9th grade class about bullying. Inspired by the impact, I immediately began creating a website, which is under construction, and I will utilize the site as a platform to provide information on bullying, resources to help students during crisis, as well as a place for kids to share experiences anonymously and engage with each other. The website will include additional information for parents, community members, and teachers to access. The website will also serve as the foundation for my organization for school officials to see as I will continue to do school tours and local work in the community at the Boys & Girls Club and various community centers. I have also identified local martial arts gyms that are more than supportive of my initiative and want to be involved.
