Anti-Bullying and Internet Safety tips from Bakersfield police


Rachel Rivera with Bakersfield Police Department joined Sunrise to talk about an issue that has become more and more common in our schools: bullying. 

BPD has a special program for teens and parents with resources and tips on what to do if your child is being bullied in school or online. 

Rivera shared a list of tips for parents when their child is being bullied.

  • Keep open lines of communication with your child
  • Recognize that you set the ultimate example for your child
  • Learn your child’s school’s policies about bullying
  • Monitor your child’s cell phone/social media activity
  • Limit your child’s access to their cell phone if it’s becoming a problem, or if necessary, take the phone/technology away
  • Never assume that your child is “too good” or would “never do ____”. Even great kids make poor choices sometimes.

If parents or teens want more information, call BPD at 326-3022 or visit
