Minneapolis FBI awards bullying prevention center
BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (AP) -- The FBI is recognizing a Bloomington organization that works to prevent bullying.
PACER's National Bullying Prevention Center will receive the FBI Director's Community Leadership Award.
The award is given annually to individuals and groups for their positive work in communities and crime prevention.
Minneapolis FBI spokesman Kyle Loven says the PACER National Bullying Prevention Center is among the best in the country.
The center was founded in 2006 to help communities nationwide address bullying. The center has resources for parents, schools and youth _ so they can talk about bullying and take action.
Donald Oswald, special agent in charge of the FBI in Minneapolis, is expected to present the award Wednesday. FBI Director Robert Mueller will again present the award to PACER at a ceremony in March in Washington.
