World Internet Safety Day - Tuesday 7 February

This Tuesday is World Internet Safety Day, which aims to promote safer and more responsible use of online technology and mobile phones, especially among children and young people. Social media in particular has become part of our day to day lives and I think it is crucial that we ensure young people are given the skills that they need to get a positive experience from this resource.
To highlight this, police officers will be visiting schools around Northumberland and hosting community drop-in events to give advice to both children and parents on how to stay safe online.
I am proud to support this initiative, and urge internet users of all ages to take full advantage of this opportunity. Internet safety is an issue which affects all of us.
