Dedham Police promote the idea that supporting a bully, or simply standing around and not helping a victim, is not acceptable.
Thanks to the continued efforts of Chief Michael D'Entremont, the Dedham Police Department once again sent School Resource Officer Ron Pucci out to “make the rounds” at the town's four elementary schools. His message to the fourth and fifth grade students around Dedham- bullying is a crime! Armed with an easy to follow four-part video, Officer Pucci visited each school and did an excellent job presenting the facts about teasing, taunting, name calling and harassment. This is Ron Pucci's eleventh year on the force, his fifth year working with the students and teachers in all of our schools. A Dedham native himself, Pucci's message comes across – even to these 10 to 11 year-old students, straight from the heart. Currently, there are …

1. Always take a friend when walking or biking to and from school. Walk and ride in well-lit areas, and never take shortcuts. Follow all the bicycle rules and wear a helmet. 2. Stay with a group while waiting at the bus stop. If anyone bothers you while going to or from school, get away from that person, and tell a trusted adult like your parents or teacher. If an adult approaches you for help or directions, remember grownups needing help should not ask children for help; they should ask other adults. 3. Teach your children NOT TO ACCEPT A RIDE from anyone unless you have said it is ok in that instance. 4. If someone follows you on foot, get away from him or her as quickly as you can. If someone follows you in a car, turn around and go …

The Dedham School Committee held a public hearing to hear suggestions about the new MOU.
Most parents would agree that having a safe, drug-free community in Dedham's schools is important. But not every parent will agree on how much schools should be involved with students, especially when it comes to drugs and alcohol. That was the main concern during the School Committee's public hearing. The purpose was to get feedback from the public about the Memorandum of Understanding between the Dedham public schools, and the Dedham Police Department, otherwise known as the MOU. The committee wants to improve their relationship with the police department by reporting bad behavior. The hope is to find patterns, and then try to find help for that particular student who may be going down the wrong path. But parents like Ann Mercer, …
