Is support from the wider community (eg police, bus companies, outside agencies) important?

A Scottish study of bullying found that there were sometimes close links between the 10 schools involved and outside agencies such as the police, psychological services and social work department. However, when it came to sharing information, it seemed that it was usually schools contacting the agencies rather than the other way around. Part of this may be due to problems with confidentiality.
