    LBP are conducting a mock court trial to highlight the dangers of bullying to youths in the Scottish Borders. 

    The event, which takes place at Peebles Sheriff Court Today (Tuesday 15th May), will allow P7 pupils from Kingsland Primary School to see how electronic bullying can be prosecuted and which agencies are involved.

    A fictitious case has been devised where two youngsters have been charged under the Communications Act 2003 after sending a threatening text message to a peer.

    All members of the class will participate in the trial, playing the role of victims, witnesses, police officers, security personnel, jury members, solicitors and even court reporters.

    The pupils will have two sittings in front of a real sheriff and local Procurator Fiscal Morag McLintock will provide a briefing along with Defence Solicitor Sally Swinney on the legal proceedings involved in an electronic bullying case.

    Local police aim to use this unique educational experience to reduce the number of youths affected by threatening or abusive emails, texts and posts on social networking sites.

    PC Barry Taylor, Locality Officer for Tweeddale said: “Bullying takes many forms, but always has a detrimental effect on the victims.

    “Lothian and Borders Police are committed to building safer communities by tackling bullying wherever it arises and will robustly deal with anyone found to be responsible.

    “This fake trial, which centres on an electronic bullying case will show the participating youngsters how police respond to crimes of this nature and the consequences of sending intimidating or offensive messages to one another.

    “Equally important, however, the trial will also highlight the impact bullying has on the victim and I am confident that the Kingsland Primary pupils will treat this issue with the seriousness it requires.”

    Morag McLintock, Procurator Fiscal for the Scottish Borders said:

    “The ways in which we communicate have evolved rapidly over the last decade, and police and prosecutors work tirelessly to keep pace with these developments.

    “An offence committed electronically is no less of an offence.

     “This is a fantastic opportunity to educate the young people of our communities, and engage them in thinking about their behaviour in a fun and interesting way.”
