People living in Cumbria are finding out how police and the community can join forces to tackle bullying.
A series of neighbourhood forums will warn that bullying occurs not just in schools but also in the workplace.
Parents, families and friends are being told to look out for signals that someone they know is a victim of bullying or is a bully themselves.
The slogan for the two-week campaign, which begins on Monday, is "See it, get help, stop it".
Residents will be able to get information about their local policing team officer and learn more about the help, support and advice they can provide.
Police can also assist in resolving complaints by mediation and using the skills of other partners in the anti-bullying group.
Andy Baines, the police representative on Cumbria's anti-bullying group, said: "Local people can use these meetings as a way of getting more information or support, and to raise issues with their local councillors and the police."
