The Columbus Division of Police and Columbus College of Art and Design joined forces to create a video for the "It Gets Better" anti-bullying website. Our mission was to create a video that paralleled those videos already created for "It Gets Better.” By working together, we hope to change the landscape of bullying in our community. We are hopeful that this collaborative effort will continue and will result in additional videos or announcements about anti-bullying in Columbus. The Columbus Division of Police recognizes the value of a diverse workforce reflective of the community that we serve.
Special thanks to Columbus College of Art and Design professors Phil Garrett, Vicki Golden, students Sakhile Vanqa and Yang Wu, and the Columbus Division of Police employees for their work on this important project.
