Safer Internet Day 2021 - February 9th
Safer Internet Day (SID) is recognized by more than 140 countries and was established to promote Internet safety and the positive use of technology by today's youth. We encourage you to learn more about the initative by participating in the various events that are scheduled to take place on Tuesday, February 9th.
Sexting is the ICAC Task Force Program's theme for this year's campaign. To bring awareness to the dangers of sexting, the ICAC Task Force Program, in collaboration with OJJDP, recently developed a list of tips for parents and youth. We encourage you to view this resource (also available in Spanish) and learn more about sexting or help facilitate a conversation with your child about the dangers of exchanging sexually explicit material.
Additional resources related to sexting have been developed by various ICAC Task Forces for youth and their parents/guardians.
