Speaking at the Townhall will be representatives from School District No. 57, the B.C. RCMP Integrated Child Exploitation Team, and Safer Schools Together. There will also be a question and answer period at the end of the presentations for those in attendance.

This is an opportunity for parents and caregivers of school-aged children and youth to come and learn from experts in the filed of online safety and sextortion about how to best safeguard our kids, states Cpl. Jennifer Cooper, Media Relations Officer for the Prince George RCMP. We are excited to be able to bring this style of information session to our community, as it is an area where many parents have expressed the need for more specific information on how best to keep their kids safe when accessing the internet.

The information session will be held at Vanier Hall and will run for two hours. No ticket purchase is required for the event.
