Sussex Police warns youngsters over internet

ONLINE dangers will be highlighted to young people in a live broadcast from Sussex Police headquarters.

Today (February 11), police will take part in Safer Internet Day by discussing issues in front of a live audience with partner organisations.

Deputy chief constable Giles York said: “The internet offers fantastic opportunities for sharing ideas, learning and socialising and young people are often the quickest to pick up the latest innovations.

“This can be really positive, but there are pitfalls and dangers, some of which we will be discussing at the event.

“So often we see people doing things online which they just wouldn’t do face to face.

“To some this can seem like harmless fun, in reality, cyber-bullying, online harassment and fraud devastates people’s lives.”

The programme will be broadcast between midday and 1pm.
