Battle Creek police

Battle Creek Police officer Zack Burgess says one of the worst things about online bullying is that it’s hard to escape.

"It used to be where, you know you go to school, you stick it out for six hours and you get bullied at school, you go home and you’re done. You don’t have to worry – it’s your safe zone," he says.

"Now you come home, you don’t have a safe zone because it’s constantly there."
