Internet safety course offered

The Terrace RCMP detachment has officers ready to provide a short course on internet safety as it applies to children.

The course follows a growing movement across the country to better educate parents and teachers about the risks children and youth may encounter in the online world.

To that end the RCMP has been working closely with the Canadian Centre for Child Protection.

The federal police office has also posted iSMART, an internet and social media resource toolkit to its www.bc.rcmp.ca website to support police officers in their work with parents and educators throughout the province.

In Terrace, RCMP Constable Angela Rabut says she’s taken parts of that toolkit and other information for a local presentation.

“We encourage any community groups to contact us and we will do a one-hour presentation on internet safety,” said Rabut.
