The pandemic of Cyber-Bullying, Vaping & Sexting in our schools is at an all-time high.  With the advent of depression and suicidal tendencies as a result, first responders in our schools and police departments must be trained to handle these situations with great sensitivity.  The goal MUST be to make the criminal activity cease and restore peace with that student and correct the behavior of the perpetrator.  The LEO and/or School Administrator will learn the fundamentals of investigating social media and internet related crimes.  The law Enforcement officer will come to understand how to identify cyber bullies, how to find out who they are and investigate Internet crime.
