Chilliwack RCMP officers support Pink Shirt Day

Officers of the Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment are wearing pink

In support of Pink Shirt Day to raising awareness to stop bullying, RCMP officers and employees of the Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment (UFVRD) are wearing pink.

Bullying can be any unwelcomed or aggressive behaviour that makes a person uncomfortable, hurt or scared. It makes no difference if bullying takes place in person, at work or school, online or in the community.

The act must not be tolerated.

“Bullying behaviour has long term effects on a victim,” said Supt. Bryon Massie, Officer in Charge of the UFVRD. “It is wrong. By wearing pink we are standing together with our community to raise awareness and give our support to work towards ending bullying type behaviours.”

The RCMP encourages parents to speak to their children and learn the warning signs of bullying.
