Naperville Police Department's 'Keeping Kids Safe Online' message gaining national audience
The city of Naperville recently announced that the Naperville Police Department’s “Keeping Kids Safe Online” message is gaining a national audience.
Keeping Kids Safe Online -- an hour-long video in which Naperville Police Detective Rich Wistocki discusses online dangers facing the nation’s youth -- debuted at an Exchange Club of Naperville event last week.
The video will be showcased on the National Exchange Club website in order to reach more families. In the professionally produced film, Wistocki gives instructions on how parents and organizations can help protect youth from the dangers of the internet.
“Detective Wistocki is one of the nation’s foremost authorities on internet crimes and prevention. It has been very exciting to work with him on this project, which brings his training and expertise to families across the country,” Scot Warren, member of the Exchange Club of Naperville and Region 3 vice president serving on the board of the National Exchange Club, said in a statement. “This video is educational, informative and professional. I believe it’s going to make a tremendous impact.”
The video comes after 15 years of partnership between the Naperville Police Department and the Exchange Club of Naperville.
“We’re fortunate in Naperville to have the resources and community partnerships necessary to bring this message to our families and teach parents how to keep their kids safe online,” Naperville Police Chief Robert Marshall said. “Our police department is extremely grateful for this partnership and opportunity to reach even more families with this training.”
