Keeping kids safe on the Internet

Meeting set to help parents with online questions 

By ROB STROUD, Staff Writer

CHARLESTON — Dateline NBC’s investigative reports about targeting teens online have caused many local parents to worry about their own children being at risk.

Deputy Chief Mark Jenkins said these parents have approached the Charleston Police Department during the last six months with concerns and questions about the risks of their children’s Internet usage.

Consequently, Jenkins said, the police department plans to offer tips for online during a public meeting at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday in the Charleston High School library. Community members from Charleston and beyond are welcome to attend.

“Knowing the places and people your children visit online is just as important as knowing their friends and the places they go in the real world,” Jenkins said. “Unless you know what your child is doing in , he or she could be in danger.”
