THE PHILIPPINE National Police (PNP) said cyberspace is emerging as a new venue for bullying, with students comprising most of the victims in reported cases. “Ito ngayon ang pinaka common na form of bullying sa ating mga kabataan (This is the most common form of bullying among the youth nowadays),” said PNP Spokesperson Col. Bernard M. Banac in a press briefing at Camp Crame on Thursday, May 30. The police recorded 22 cases of cyberbullying from 2017 to March 2019, with two so far this year. Mr. Banac encouraged the young to immediately report such cases and any form of bullying. He said, “Napakahalaga po na kaagad ito ay mai-report sa ating pulis para agad maimbestigahan at ‘yung mga suspects ay mahuli natin (It’s very important that these are reported immediately to the police, so we can investigate and catch the suspects).” The PNP will be deploying around 120,000 policemen in public schools nationwide for the opening of classes on June 3. — Vince Angelo C.
