The presentation prepares adults to protect children and themselves from predators that are entering our homes through our computer screens.

It is now believed that one in five children are sexually solicited or approached on over the Internet in a one year period of time. Online availability has lead to a new category of crime and social corrosion. You won't want to miss this presentation. Bring a friend that needs this vital information with you.
