[ARCHIVED] Weekly Update Article September 30, 2019

Overall the Eaton County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to 881 calls for service/events.  Higher call volumes occurred in the following areas:  Alarms (20), Car Deer Accidents (11), Assist Citizen/Motorist Assists (39), Check Well Beings (26), Domestic Disputes (12), Shoplifting Complaints (23), Larcenies (18), Disorderly Person or Subject (11), MDOP (10), Personal Injury Crashes (4), Property Damage Crashes (27), Suspicious Subject/Situation/Vehicle (66), Traffic Hazards (35), Traffic Stops (168), Traffic Violations (48), and Drug Offense or Overdose (6).

October is National Bullying Prevention Month. If you were to look back, I bet each of us can remember being bullied, seeing someone being bullied, or maybe even bullying someone ourselves. Bullying damages the victim’s self-esteem, social skills, friendships, and affects their schoolwork, just to name a few. Schools have adopted programs and have made great strides in teaching students proper behaviors to combat bullying.

Parents keep communication open with your kids. Assure them that they can always talk to about anything. Many times, as parents, we may not even know our kids are the victims of bullying.

Teach your kids to:

· Treat everyone with respect. Nobody should be mean to others.

  • Stop and think before they say or do something that could hurt someone.
  • Keep in mind that everyone is different. Not better or worse. Just different.

What can your kids do if they’re bullied:

  • Look at the kid bullying you and tell him or her to stop in a calm, clear voice. You can also try to laugh it off. This works best if joking is easy for you. It could catch the kid bullying you off guard.
  • If speaking up seems too hard or not safe, walk away and stay away. Don’t fight back. Find an adult to stop the bullying on the spot.

There are things you can do to stay safe in the future, too.

  • Talk to an adult you trust. Don’t keep your feelings inside. Telling someone can help you feel less alone. They can help you make a plan to stop the bullying.
  • Stay away from places where bullying happens.
  • Stay near adults and other kids. Most bullying happens when adults aren’t around.

Yours in Public Safety,

Sheriff Tom Reich
