Cyberbullying Awareness

Cyberbullying Awareness

This course was originally created for the Vancouver Police Department and contains some VPD-specific information/policies.

The Internet has created a whole new world of social communications. While most interactions are positive, digital communication tools are increasingly used to antagonize and intimidate others. This is commonly known as cyberbullying.

Cyberbullying Awareness provides information on what cyberbullying is, how it is carried out, and the impact on victims. In addition to reviewing options for responding to a cyberbullying incident, this course also explores the ways that cyberbullying can be addressed under both civil and criminal law, including the proposed Bill C-13.
