Leicestershire Police is hosting internet awareness seminars for parents, carers and teachers as part of Get Safe Online’s Safe Social Media Day on Monday 21 August.
The presentations will include material created by the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP) and will provide an insight into what young people get up to online and how to protect them in the digital world.
During the session, members of the public can find out more about:
- the Kayleigh Haywood case and the film Kayleigh's Love Story
- what the risks are for young people on social media
- digital footprint and sharing of personal information
- common apps, games and sites
- where to go for guidance
- how to report, and who to report to
The seminars will be held at Force Headquarters in Enderby at 5.30pm and 7.30pm on Monday 21 August. Each session will last for around 1.5 hours and are strictly for over 18’s only. There will be an opportunity to ask questions.
Anyone wishing to attend one of the seminars should complete a simple online form. Due to Force Headquarters being a secure property, one form will need to be completed for each person attending as only those who have registered will be allowed onto the site.
