More Schools Needed for Cyber Safety Lecture

November 20th, 2007 by Mike Vasilinda

Attorney General Bill McCollum spent the day in a Tallahassee high school warning students about the dangers of cyberspace. McCollum recently added 50 people to a internet task force. Their only job is to track down people on the internet propositioning kids for sex. The Attorney Generals message to the students…be skeptical..be safe.

“There are sex predators out there who want to go after them and they give out information about themselves personally, their location, things about themselves that will entice a predator, give them an opportunity,” McCollum said. “So we go in and tell the kids what they need to know about the dangers of the internet, that who they may be speaking to might be a 40 year-old man instead of a 12 year-old or a 14 year-old or a 15 year-old girl or boy.”
