Preventing Child Exploitation Update

Staffordshire Police have received reports of approaches to youngsters through social media platforms, inviting them to participate in online challenges which could potentially compromise their wellbeing and safety.

It’s really important that our young people have good cyber hygiene and a good understanding of online usage and safety, to ensure they refrain from engaging with requests or invitations from persons who they do not know or trust. Details concerning such challenges and what parents, carers and educators need to know and can do, as well as some other information regarding keeping children safe online, can be found here.
