Geneva police to present online safety program

Digital safety program set at high school

GENEVA – Geneva District 304 invites parents of all students to attend an online safety and digital citizenship presentation from 7 to 8 p.m. March 26 at the Geneva High School auditorium, 416 McKinley Ave., officials announced in a news release.

Police Det. Sarah Sullivan will be presenting the program.
 
The presentation is free and intended for adults only. Attendees will be asked to RSVP via an online link that will be provided in early March.
 
Sullivan, who has been educating parents for more than 10 years on this topic, will provide parents with tips and resources to protect their children.

Her presentation will include parental controls, monitoring software, cyberbullying, texting dangers, internet predators and warning signs.

“It is never too early for parents to be aware of this information,” Sullivan stated in the release.
“We don’t want them to be blind-sided as their children get older.”

Her information would be applicable to adults in protecting their own information.
 
Sullivan’s biggest goal is to start a dialogue between parents and their children.

“If families can just start talking about safe online behaviors, then kids can be more open with their parents later on,” she stated in the release.
