PC Courtney would like to share an important message with parents and carers. The Covid-19 epidemic has brought with it many disruptions, with schools closed and many children being home-schooled.
Technology has helped us, but many of the challenges families faced online before the lockdown are still there – and some new ones have been introduced.
With so many children at home, it is more important than ever that we help our children to think carefully about their online behaviour.
Have a listen to PC Courtney’s top advice and if you are worried about online sexual abuse you can contact the Child Exploitation Online Protection team by searching for CEOP.
Please remember as the police, we are here to help if something goes wrong. Our focus will be on safeguarding the child concerned and helping to resolve issues. The Police can be contacted on 101, or 999 in an emergency.
Together we can help keep our children safe.
