Legislator BRIAN SCAVO has introduced Local Law F.
Prohibiting Cyber Bullying in Albany County.
The toughest law in New York State, to protect our families and children in New York State in Albany County. Lately many children have died due to these internet predators (cyber bullies). On October 12th, 2010 at 6:00pm, the Albany County Legislature will take the lead against cyber bullying by passing Local Law F.
Legislator Brian Scavo said “It is my honor to be supported by my fellow legislators Shawn Morse, Frank Commisso & Dan McCoy. Local Law F will protect the people of Albany County of all forms of electronic harassment.”
Law maker Brian Scavo also said “This is the toughest law in New York State, once this law is passed, this will be an important tool for law enforcement to protect our children and families from internet predators. 42% of our children in the 4th thru 8th grade are being bullied online. This is a long standing problem with school aged children across the country.”
Local victims of cyber bullying will also testify during the public comment period. Mr. Kevin Collado will provide demonstrations to the media on Cyber Bullying.
