Dyfed Powys Police supports Safer internet Day February 9th 2016
Safer Internet Day (SID) is organised in February of each year to promote safer and more responsible use of online technology, especially among children and young people across the world.
Safer Internet Day 2016 – the thirteenth edition of the event – centres on the theme “Play your part for a better internet”, and users young and old are encouraged to highlight positive uses of technology and to explore the role we all play in helping to create a better and safer online community.
It calls upon young people, parents, carers, teachers, social workers, law enforcement, companies, policymakers, and wider, to join together in helping to create a better internet.
Dyfed Powys police will hold a live Question & Answer session on Twitter on the 9th February, between 12-1pm and 5-6pm, with members of the Digital Communications and Cybercrime Unit and Bethan James the Dyfed-Powys Police School Liaison Coordinator.
Detective Rob Gravelle, Digital Communications and Cybercrime Unit, said
“The Internet is integral to the lives of people of all ages and Safer Internet Day is a chance for everyone to do something positive to help make the internet a better place. I would encourage anyone with a question on internet safety to join the Q and A session on Twitter.”
Bethan James said
“Knowing the facts is the key to staying safe online. From social media to shopping online, all ages need to be knowledgeable and responsible. Interacting with us via the Q & A will help reinforce those safety messages and build a safer Internet for all.”
