"We are very excited to see this pro-active joint approach develop in Schaumburg to address bullying -- involving the school, the police department, and the students themselves," Schaumburg Police Chief Ken Bouche said in a statement.

Besides Payton's appearance, students from the school's "Be the Change" committee spoke with their peers during lunch and asked them to sign an anti-bullying pledge.

The Schaumburg police and engineering and public works departments also developed signs to be posted around the high school stating "Bullying Stops Here" with an anonymous tip line answered by school staff.
