Birmingham Police department holding anti-bullying conference

Police in Birmingham are trying to combat bullying among young people. They will host an anti-bullying conference Thursday night.

The conference is open to both parents and students in the metropolitan area, and will include a keynote speaker along with tips on ways to prevent bullying.

Alabama is one of 49 states with laws aimed at preventing bullying among students, but concerns remain in many of the 132 school districts around the state about implementing the law.
