  3. Possession of child pornography (two counts)

Safety Tips

  • Never give out personal information such as name, address, telephone number and/or computer password on the Internet without parental or guardian consent
  • Avoid chat rooms and web sites that are not first approved by parents or guardian
  • If a child sees anything that disturbs or scares them on the Internet, tell a teacher, parent or guardian
  • Never send pictures or post personal information on the Internet – particularly on sites like Facebook – without parental or guardian approval. Assume nothing is private online
  • Never arrange to meet anyone whom you only know from the Internet. People are not always who they appear to be
  • Control children’s Internet use (time, sites visited) and ensure that computers are located in common areas such as living / family rooms
