PUBLIC SAFETY: The Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Computer Crimes Unit will be presenting an in-depth presentation on Internet safety for parents at Westwood Regional High School in Washington Township on Oct. 9.

Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli

“Staying Safe in Cyberspace – Internet Safety for Parents,” is “a comprehensive examination of today’s Internet and the dangers that lurk inside chat rooms, instant messages, e-mail and blogs,” organizers said.

It begins at 7 p.m..

The presentation is an integral function of the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Computer Crimes Unit, which “hopes to raise parents’ awareness of online predators and the dangerous content that is only a mouse-click away from their child’s grasp.”

It includes “vivid graphics and streaming video clips” in showing “the seedier side of the Internet,” followed by a discussion of ways parents can protect their children.

“Protecting them on the World Wide Web, a truly unregulated atmosphere, is a tremendous task that needs to begin at home, where children are indeed most vulnerable,” Bergen County Prosecutor John Molinelli said.

Molinelli’s detectives look to both detect and deter Internet crime — in part, by including educational initiatives.

“It is their hope that by having skilled, well-versed computer crimes Investigators, coupled with parents armed with a working knowledge of the Internet and its pitfalls, the children of this County are well-protected while exploring the World Wide Web,” the prosecutor said in a release..
