Two webinars teaching internet safety for parents will take place later this month.
“Internet Safety and Digital Literacy for Parents and Caregivers” will take place on March 23 from 7 to 9 p.m.
“Online Sexual Predation and Exploitation: What is the threat and what can caregivers do to help minimize the risks” will take place on March 25 from 7 to 9 p.m.
Both webinars are free for participants. Links and passwords will be shared to all schools, RCMP say.
Whitehorse RCMP will host the presentations in partnership with The White Hatter, a B.C. organization that specializes in internet safety education.
“In recent years, the RCMP have seen a drastic increase in child pornography, extortion and child luring type offences,” RCMP said in a press release issued March 3.
“Whitehorse RCMP believes that it is beneficial to provide parents with extra information on how to keep children safe online.”
