Take time to l​earn mo​re about this year's Safer In​ternet Day (SID) celebrations that will take place on Tuesday, February 11th. The campaign's slogan, "Together for a better Internet", is a call to action for all stakeholders to join together and play their part in creating a better Internet for everyone, and especially for younger users.​

We encourage you take a few minutes to read this year's featured article, Sextortion: Stop It Before It Starts, written by Detective Christie Hirota with the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office ICAC Task Force.  Detective Hirota shares tips for communicating with our children about sharing explicit images.

​​"The victimization of our children on the Internet is not a problem that we can rely solely on law enforcement to solve. It is vital that we educate and empower parents, children and care providers if we are to have an impact in the fight against online predators". Mike Thorley; Arizona ICAC Commander​.
