WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - WECT and Fox Wilmington are teamed up with the Wilmington Police Department to tackle a tough topic: bullying.

We co-hosted a screening of the documentary, Bully, at Thalian Hall Thursday evening.

Hundreds of parents and students attended the screening.

Judy Stubblefield, who investigates cases of bullying in New Hanover County Schools, was in the audience.

She said she hopes the film raises awareness.

She believes bullying is under-reported not just here, but around the country.

Last year, there were 200 reported cases for the district's 41 schools.
