Police Safer Neighbourhood team goes back to school for internet safety talk

Posted on 16th March 2017

Our officers from the Mercia Safer Neighbourhood Team have gone back to school to speak about the dangers of the internet. 

The event happened yesterday, Wednesday, March 15 when PCSOs Emma Guest and Kerry Wallington-Waite went to Findern Primary School and spoke to year five and six pupils about internet safety. 

Kerry said: “We spoke to the children about how they can keep safe on social media and the dangers of grooming and cyber bullying.” 

After the event, two of the year six pupils, Ben and Emil, wrote about the experience saying:

“Yesterday, Kerry and Emma, whom are our local PCSOs, visited our school  to talk to us about internet safety. Internet safety is very important because it teaches us how to stay safe online. We learnt about the importance of keeping our personal information private and that social media sites, if not secure and used responsibly, can be dangerous. We are very grateful for their visit.”
