Bullying Incident Investigation Completed

Post Date:12/18/2017 3:18 PM
The Appleton Police Department has completed their investigation into allegations of a physical bullying incident, said to have resulted in injury to a student at an Appleton public school.

On Tuesday, December 12, 2017, the School Resource Unit of the Appleton Police Department was made aware of an allegation regarding the physical harm of an elementary student during a school recess period.  The incident had occurred on Wednesday, December 6, 2017.  Our agency began to investigate when we were contacted by the student’s parent.

The SRO assigned to the school completed interviews with staff and students.  They also reviewed video and medical records associated with the allegations.  Based on the investigation, many allegations were shown to be exaggerated or false.  While there was an incident, we have no reason to believe bullying occurred as reported in social media posts.  No charges will be pursued.

For additional information please contact Sgt. Lund at (920) 832-5509.
