    LSCO Internet Safety Course tonight at Briar Woods High School

    The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office continues to hold a series of courses called Internet Safety: What Parents Need to Know. This two-part course will help introduce parents to basic Internet safety as well as some advanced techniques to help keep children safe while online and using technology. Please be advised that these are parent only classes due to graphic content.

    Topics that will be discussed: Social networking, sexting/texting, cellphone technology and features, laptops vs. desktop PC’s, current trends, predatory behaviors, PC and console gaming and monitoring techniques.

    The next class will be held at 7 p.m. Feb. 11 at Briar Woods High School. This is part II of the session held at this school. Below is a list of the upcoming Internet safety courses being taught by the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office Adult Crime Prevention Unit:

    Also available at the classes will be the ComputerCop, a computer software program that allows parents to view and permanently delete potentially harmful images and information that have been downloaded on any home computer (Windows Only). The free software is easy to install and gives parents an added safeguard to make sure their children are using the Internet safely and responsibly.
