CHECK ON YOUR CHILD’S SKYPE CON­TACTS

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Street Watch -

A re­port has come through of an 11-year-old boy talk­ing on Skype, and when his mum checked who was at the other end of the line, it wasn't the per­son she thought it was. There were some sex­ual con­no­ta­tions about the con­ver­sa­tion and the per­son was not from Australia. This in­ci­dent has been re­ported to na­tional au­thor­i­ties, but WA po­lice are con­cerned par­ents should know more about how to en­sure their child’s safety on­line. Our warn­ing to par­ents is ‘Do you re­ally know who your child is Skyp­ing, and what is go­ing on?’ For more in­for­ma­tion go to www.acorn.gov.au. - Se­nior Sergeant Kate Vi­vian
