Technology is pervasive in our modern world and although it can be an asset, there are dangers lurking as well. The Natrona County Sheriff's Office is giving you a chance to learn about what they are, and how you can address them. Deputy Micheal Scott will be giving a Cyber Awareness presentation, "Dangers of Technology", on March 12th. The presentation is for parents, students, and community members.

"When it comes to the internet, a lot of the kids, what they're doing, they're getting on their phones, their tablets, their computers," said Scott, who is a Youth Diversion Officer. "It's a technology world out there, and the kids know it, and they're really extremely smart about it."

Topics include:

  • Dark Net-A Real Place
  • Cyberbullying
  • Laws Regarding Sexting, Sextortion, and Bullying
  • Suicide Prevention and Awareness
  • Cell Phone Applications-What Parents Need To Know
  • Hidden Apps- how to recognize apps that may hide files, chats, or photos on your child's phone.

There is no cost to attend, but space is limited. If you'd like to reserve a seat, or would like more information, you can call Deputy Michael Scott at (307) 235-9282.
