OJJDP's Internet Crimes Against Children Task Forces Promote Safer Internet Day

JUVJUST: Safer Internet Day: February 9, 2021

OJJDP's Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Forces are highlighting Safer Internet Day to be held on February 9, 2021. This awareness campaign promotes Internet safety and the positive use of technology by youth. 

Sexting is the focus of this year's campaign. The ICAC Task Force Program has developed a list of tips for parents and youth to learn more about sexting and how to facilitate a conversation with youth about the dangers of exchanging sexually explicit material.

The ICAC Task Force Program is also promoting Safer Internet Day by offering videos and resources for learning and teaching how to safely use the Internet.
