Internet Safety Presentations Tuesday, April 24 at 6:30 pm at Houghton High School Wednesday, April 25 at 1:00 pm at Michigan Tech MUB Ball Room Thursday, April 26 at 6:30 pm at Jeffers High School These presentations contain sensitive content and are for adults only. Keep in mind that the World Wide Web has no boundaries and that our children are no more isolated in the Upper Peninsula than anywhere else. SA Wilton will bridge the gap between the generations and provide basic/discreet computer/telephone forensic training for monitoring our children’s online activities. The presentation is very real and fact based. Audiences have referred to it as “eye opening” and “a powerful message.” Audiences are encouraged to take notes and/or pictures for their future reference. In addition, instructional manuals referred to as “Smart Cards” for monitoring social media and etc. will be disseminated electronically to anyone interested. This is a free event open only to adults due to the subject matter. The presentation will contain actualcase examples which include explicit conversations amongst children and online predators as well as training that is not subject for children as we don’t want to teach them anything they don’t already know. Statistics: The Internet has become the preferred playground for child sex predators seeking innocent young victims. Last year alone, HSI special agents logged nearly a million hours working child sexual exploitatio cases, opening more than 4,000 investigations.
