ADVANCE, MO (KFVS) - A Missouri state trooper taught a lesson in cyberbullying Tuesday at Advance school.
In a school assembly, Trooper Clark Parrott told kids about the potential dangers of their internet activity.
Kids as young as fifth grade listened.
"We want to try to get the message out early as young as we can," Parrott said. "We have 5th and 6th graders here today listen to it. And like I said if I can change one mind, then I feel like I've done my job."
The address was one of many trooper try to hold for teen and pre-teen students around southeast Missouri.
Trroper Parrott warned kids that in many cases cyberbullying can be a crime.
