Other Public Educational Programs:
 
 
Professional Development Program
A program that conducts educational Seminars for educators that include Certification that will allow them access i-Safe Curriculum.



The Alcohol/Drug Awareness Program
This program is available to schools that request information for students from grades 6-12. The PowerPoint Program includes information about the dangers of all drugs, including alcohol that children are exposed to and are all too readily available.


Death Notification Program
This program provides information for all first responders that, in their every day duties, may experience tragic events. Bringing notification to families that a loved one has died in any type of tragedy is an extremely difficult task. Participants learn about the need to be very aware of the responses that they might incur when they bring notification of a sudden death.


Internet Dangers for Kids

The Stranger Danger Internet Program is designed to educate and empower youth to safely and responsibly take control of their Internet experience. We are working with schools to educate students on how to protect themselves from cyber predators, recognize potentially harmful or inappropriate actions, avoid or extract themselves from potentially dangerous situations, seek help when threatened, and maximize the positive features of the Internet.

Although the Internet provides children with many educational benefits, it also presents dangers. What America's children can see and do online has been a major concern for parents, educators, and law enforcement ever since the Internet became widely available. The main crime prevention issues children face while surfing the Internet today are:


exposure to inappropriate material on the Web that may contain sexual, hateful, or violent content,
bullying and harassment through email or chat/bulletin board messages, luring or intent of physical molestation when they innocently provide personal information or arrange a meeting,
legal and financial errors, such as giving out parents' credit card number, and
plagiarism and other intellectual property issues, such as copying information off websites into school papers or downloading music without the owner's permission.

While much of the responsibility for supervising children falls to parents and educators, children themselves need to be taught how to act responsibly and be safe online. There are limits to direct supervision and no filtering software is perfect.
