Protect Your Children from High-Tech Predators

A recent article in the The San Jose Mercury News warns parents that technology is making it easier for sexual predators to sexual exploit their children and distribute child pornography.

In the article Det. Sgt. Paul Gillespie of the Toronto police's sex crimes unit states, "everything's going to be in the size of a (cellular) telephone that has the computing power of 10 of the best PCs that are out there right now. Everything's going to be portable, mobile, wireless - that's just going to pose huge challenges for law enforcement and I'm not sure what the answer is."

"The tip of the iceberg was the arrest of a 36-year-old man last month for using a cell phone camera to take digital photographs under the skirts of young girls in the city's east end", said Gillespie

To learn how to protect the children in your life from online predators go to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children's website.
