INTERNET SAFETY

By visiting this web site, you are already on the internet! The Maumee Police Division knows the valuable advances that this technology can bring to Police work. We also recognize that on-line computer exploration opens a world of possibilities for you children by expanding their horizons and exposing them to different cultures and ways of life. They can also be exposed to dangers as they navigate the information superhighway. There are individuals who attempt to sexually exploit children through the internet. Some of these individuals gradually seduce their targets through the use of attention, affection, kindness and even gifts. It is important for parents to understand that children can be victimized while having conversations in "chat rooms", as well as the transfer of sexually explicit materials via E-Mail. We are providing you and your family with links to Internet Safety Sites. A brochure, "A Parent's Guide to Internet Safety", is also available at the Maumee Police Division, 109 E. Dudley Street, Maumee, Ohio 43537.
