Polk County, Florida -- "Bully Free"...That's the message that Polk County is sending as it rolls out a "mobile" anti-bullying campaign.

Sheriff Grady Judd, along with Polk County Commissioners, Polk Transit and Digitech Graphics Group collaborated to create the "Bully Free Zone" community bus.

The fixed route service bus, which will be rotated on various routes throughout the county, has been wrapped with Printed Graphic Vinyl specifically designed to share Polk County's anti-bullying message.  The colorful graphics, large print and "NO Bullying" messages cover the full length of the 30-foot bus.

This comes after 12-year-old Rebecca Sedwick of Polk County took her own life after her mother says she was relentlessly bullied.
