Tackling cyber bullying in cyber space
This is a nice example of relevant media placement - initiated by Victoria Police in Australia. Having tried unsuccessfully to serve an intervention order to a man, who'd been harassing his former partner on Facebook, the police uploaded a video of the court order to the social media site. The elusive offender was finally served and the victim protected.
When the police initially sought the help of Facebook, Leading Senior Constable Walton found them rather unhelpful, the Sydney Morning Herald reported, describing the organisation as "rather complex and bureaucratic".
