February 7th, 2017 - Police & the Community

Today people around the world join forces to teach children and youth about using online technology in a safe and responsible way. This year, the Canadian Centre for Child Protection Canadian Centre for Child Protection is introducing a new, free resource to help parents talk online safety with their kids.

Safety Rocks is an activity book aimed at children in Grades 3 and 4. Jack, Olivia and their dragons help parents teach important personal safety strategies that apply both offline and online – such as when to keep or speak a secret, who is a safe adult, and what is okay and not okay.

NeedHelpNow.Ca helps teens stop the spread of sexual pictures or videos and provides support along the way.

Take the time to educate your kids on the importance of having a positive digital reputation, and how to avoid online strangers! #sid2017
