Sheriff Jody Dotson and Detective Andrew Turner of the Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office visited Hillcrest Elementary School on April 8th for a special presentation.

Grades 4 through 6 attended a presentation about “Bullying” and how to stop and prevent it. A powerpoint presentation was done for the students concerning how not to be a victim, how to stop bullying and how to prevent bullying.

The students also received an activity book about violence prevention and a “sweet treat” (a sucker) about being drug free. Students at Hillcrest asked lots of questions and participated in the presention. Attendance was around 110 students for the presentation.
