Get Safe Online, internet safety specialists, have been funded by Cumbria’s Police and Crime Commissioner Peter McCall to deliver a number of events to help raise awareness of some of the risks people can face when they use the internet – as well as giving useful tips so that people can enjoy the internet safely.
As part of the 3-year project to help spread the word about what simple tips and techniques people can use to protect themselves and their families, the Get Safe Online team and the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner will be in Workington Town Centre on Friday 22 June and Saturday 23 June, between 10am and 4pm.
Among the attractions….
- Police and Crime Commissioner Peter McCall will be there during the morning on the Friday;
- Some of Cumbria’s new Mini-Police recruits will be there between 10am and 10:30am on Friday;
- Experts will be on hand to give advice and answer questions over the two days, including :
- Fraud specialists from NatWest and Lloyds Bank
- Internet security software company Kaspersky
- Get Safe Online representatives offering general advice
The Get Safe Online team will have a mobile ‘photo booth’ for the public to use and will be talking to people about the things to consider when sharing and posting photographs online.
