DARIEN, Conn. The Darien Police Youth Division and the Depot are teaming up to teach parents how to keep kids safe while surfing the Internet. The hands-on workshop will be taught by Detective Chet Perkowski, a forensic computer specialist with the Darien Police Department.
The program is intended for parents of children in fifth grade through high school. It will teach parents how to install and navigate parental-control software, look up a computers history after it has been deleted, keep track of what kids do on Facebook and other social media, and offer tips on how to remove content that has been posted online.
The workshop is the first in a series called, Straight Talk, offered by the Darien police and the Depot. This series is intended to replace the monthly Cop Shop forum, and address topics that parents have shown an interest in learning about.
This workshop will be held March 8 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Depot. It is free, but space is limited, so you must register by contacting Jennifer Montanaro at firstname.lastname@example.org .
