Guam - Nearly 400 people registered for today's Project Safe Neighborhoods Gang Resistance Education and Training two-day workshop, hosted by the U.S. Attorney's Office. Among the attendees are law enforcement officers, social workers, non-profit organizations and 300 school children who were selected to gain information to improve their life and communication skills.
The conference is geared toward prevention and awareness with discussions on issues such as bullying, cyberbulling, safety on the Internet and drug prevention.
U.S. Attorney Alicia Limtiaco said, "We also do have sessions on children with disabilities and how to deal with bullying and harassment. We also have a session on bullying and abuse of the elderly. We believe those are very important subjects that we need to discuss and we also have reps from the CNMI public school system who will also be giving a presentation on events and activities that they have coordinated there."
The conference continues tomorrow at the Harvest Christian Life Center from 8am to 5 in the afternoon. It is free to the public. Limtiaco says her office is coordinating similar outreaches for the future.
