HPD at the Houston Area Women's Center

HPD officers from Public Affairs Community Outreach gave a presentation on anti-bullying today at the Houston Area Women's Center. 

Pictured on the bottom right photo from L to R: Senior Police Officer M. Siddiqi, Senior Police Officer A. Valle, and Senior Police Officer R. Pantoja. 

SPO Valle talked about how to handle being bullied, avoidance techniques, learning social skills, telling a teacher, telling a parent or guardian, walking away, tell or talk to the bully, and using humor. He also advised the kids that being active and involved in school and extracurricular activities helps with self esteem.

HPD officers often visit with youth at the shelter and give personal safety tips along with crime prevention information.
