Preventing online child exploitation

Submitted By David Zender

Get a glimpse into the "Dark side of the Internet" and see first hand how our children are being exploited online. Learn about the growing crime trends on the Internet while we show you how to protect yourself and your children. The first half hour of the PowerPoint presentation will take you through the various types of crimes committed online as well as real life examples. We then show an online demonstration of what happens to children in chat rooms as well as social networking sites, such as MySpace.com.

Officer Steve DeWarns is a police officer in the San Francisco Bay Area. He has 15 years experience and his expertise is in the field of Online Child Exploitation Investigations. For the past 6 years, Officer DeWarns has dedicated himself to the teaching of online safety to parents and children. He has worked with the F.B.I.'s Innocent Images and the U.S. Secret Service Electronic Crimes Task Force. His most recent appearances were on the NBC Today Show.
