Central Point authorities host discussion about Internet crimes

The Central Point Police Department, Central Point Parks and Recreation Department and Central Point School District 6 invite you to attend a free two-hour discussion on Monday about the reality of Internet crimes, bullies and sexual predators.

Organizers cite statistics that 1 in 7 children between the ages of 10 and 17 are solicited for sex online, and it's estimated only 35 percent of these incidents are reported. The free two-hour discussion will teach how to identify online predators, what parents can do to monitor their child's online activity, Internet terminology and other topics to help parents keep their children safe.

Presenting the material is Central Point Police Sgt. Josh Moulin, a police officer for more than five years who developed the department's High-Tech Crimes Unit, which he supervises. Moulin is one of only 630 Certified Forensic Computer Examiners worldwide. His training and experience makes him an expert in the area of digital forensics and the investigation of technology related crimes.

The course is designed for adults due to content that is not suitable for children.

The meeting is scheduled from 7 to 9 p.m. Monday at the Crater Performing Arts Center at Crater High School, 644 N. Third St.

Call 664-3321, Ext. 261 or 263, or e-mail jenniferb@ci.central-point.or.us for more information.
