The second annual “Examining Bullying in Our Community” attracted approximately 92 participants last Saturday. The event was presented by the Chaska Police Department’s Public Safety focus Group.

Chaska Police Chief Scott Knight credited groups such as the Carver County Attorney’s Office, Carver County Sheriff’s Office and Chaska Human Rights Commission for “pushing this topic and keeping it out there for folks.”

The event featured CLIMB Theatre, which performed interactive plays with various bullying scenarios. There were breakout sessions on issues such as bullying in schools, cyber-bullying, suicide awareness and GLBTQ (gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, questioning) youth.

A number of local agencies were at the event handing out information, such as local public safety groups, the Sexual Violence Center and the West Suburban Teen Clinic.

“There’s something here for everybody,” Knight said, at the event. “We are here to help anyone who is a [bullying] target,” he said.
