State Honor Online Protection Group

July 28th, 2009 by flanews

An internet safety group is joining forces with Florida’s Attorney General to protect kids from online predators.

Tuesday the state cabinet recognized the group Stop Internet Predators for its efforts to inform parents and teachers about new technology helping predators target kids. The group says predators can use Google StreetView to prey on kids. Google StreetView is a program that shows pictures of people’s homes and yards. Stacy Rumenap, Executive Director of Stop Internet Predators, said it’s important for parents to be aware of what technology predators are using.

“Technology is constantly changing and we as parents and as educators need to make sure we are keeping up with changes to the technology,” said Rumenap.

The group says Google StreetView is a good tool when used properly, but they want parents to know they can ask Google to take picture of their property off the program.
