Senator Kemp Hannon
6th District New York
New Bully Prevention Center

Senator Kemp Hannon announced this week that Child Abuse Prevention Services (CAPS) will help the Senator lead the charge against bullying and cyber-bullying in New York State by opening a Bully Prevention Center next month.

“Every day there are kids who are afraid to go to school and to check their e-mail in fear of being harassed and bullied,” said Senator Hannon. “The only way we are going to solve this problem is by working together in a large scale community effort. This Center is certainly a significant step in the right direction,” Hannon continued.

The CAPS Bullying Prevention Center will officially open next month and is the first of its kind to offer direct support, resources and solutions toward resolving bullying and cyber-bullying situations among children, and creating safer and more productive learning environments in our schools.

 “We all have a role to play to keep our children safe from bullying and cyber-bullying and the Bully Prevention Center is CAPS’ proactive response to this pervasive problem,” said CAPS Executive Director Alane Fagin.
