Although bullying, harassment, and stalking remain highly invasive, destructive, and devastating in-person crimes, the bullies can reach you online too, with email, phones, text messages, instant messaging, social media and defamatory websites. It’s easy for bullies to hide behind a computer or device to help them attack and harass someone. Because the bully can hide better on the internet, the seriousness and consequences of cyber harassment can be as severe as, if not more severe than, when you are face-to-face.
If you or someone you know is currently in danger from cyberbullying, harassment, or stalking, call 911 your local law enforcement officials. DON’T WAIT!
Threats of violence, child pornography, unauthorized sexually explicit messages or photos, or
photos/videos taken in private places should always be reported immediately to your local law
