Learn About Internet Crimes Aimed at Your Children

Extra Extra

For parents who may wonder or even joke that their child knows more about the internet than they do; they’re right and the Fort Myers police Department wants to offer help. 


Children today are among the first generation that has grown up with the internet. As a parent how much do you know about the pitfalls that may be lurking in cyberspace for your son or daughter? Detective Rochelle Curr has produced an informative, easy to use pamphlet of tips and guides to inform and educate parents on what to be alert for when it comes to your child’s use of the internet. “Parents are often shocked when they learn about websites that are targeting their children,” the Detective said. “Our goal with these free brochures is to offer them guidelines to recognize forms of exploitation,” she added.  It includes useful links to protective websites that will point out the pros and cons that can range from sexual predators to social media manipulation. Useful parental control software to monitoring your child’s phone and computer usage. 


The pamphlets are available for pick up at the reception desk in the lobby of the Fort Myers Police Department or available for download from the FMPD website at www.fmpolice.com.
