Internet Safety Day 9th February 2016

 
February 8th 2016
Gloucestershire Police is encouraging us all to play our part for a better internet!

Safer Internet Day 2016 is on Tuesday February 9 and the aim this year is to help promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people.

Safer Internet Day forms part of the wider Internet Safety Week which runs from February 8-12 with the aim in Gloucestershire to find out what the public want to know about safe use of the internet and to encourage our community to pass that knowledge to friends and family.

Ian Maxted, Safer Cyber Co-ordinator for Gloucestershire Constabulary said 'What we really want to achieve is to get people talking about safe use of the internet no matter how old you are. It's easy for us to second guess what information the public want to know about, but it's much more effective to actually go out there and speak to people and get a grip of what their concerns are. That's why our officers and staff will be touring the county throughout the whole week talking to all ages of our community to find out what worries them about internet use.

'Once we've established what questions the public want answers to we really want people to share that information with their friends and family. If one person shares what they've learnt with 5 people and in turn those five people share it with a further 5 people, before we know it we've managed to get that advice to thousands of people!'

Our Neighbourhood and Community Engagement Vehicles (NEV & CEV) will be taking our “stay safe online” message to the following communities:
