Tuesday, February 8th is Safer Internet Day!
Illinois Attorney General will be hosting a special live panel discussion (6:30pm) featuring the Commander, Deputy Chief, Investigator, and Assistant Attorney General.
They will have an in-depth discussion on the issue of “Sextortion” that youth are facing today via technology. A lot of information on this particular crime will be discussed, and they will go over an actual case in which an offender sextorted multiple victims, and went so far as to convince children to offend on other children. Grooming tactics and how predators gain control and trust over youth will be discussed as well as warning signs.
The goal is to create awareness to prevent children from falling victim to such predators. You will have the opportunity to ask our investigators any questions you may have. This will be a learning opportunity, first-hand from the individuals who investigate and prosecute exploitation, and protect children daily. Please listen in!
