Anchorage Police Department Local AgencyDeputy Community Relations Director Laura Holman: June is internet safety month.
June is internet safety month. So it’s a great time to review our kids online behavior and learn how we can help them stay safer while using the internet. There are lots of good reasons for kids to be online – education, entertainment, and to socialize with friends and family. But there are also risks they face, including online enticement, sextortion, and cyberbullying. Parents, please talk to your kids regularly about safe internet and social media behavior and monitor their activity. Some of the most common issues our School Resource Officers (SROs) encounter throughout the school year are sexting, bullying, harassment, and threats, but these threats don’t stop just because it’s summer. It’s important your children understand what is acceptable behavior and what is not. If you or your child notices anything questionable or suspicious online, please report it to APD immediately so we may investigate and determine if any criminal action has occurred. For more resources on how to keep your kids safe on the internet, check out https://www.safewise.com/resources/internet-safety-kids/
