Child Protection and Family Services Agency urging children not to form any type of relationship with strangers they meet online.

The urging comes after a security guard was charged after he allegedly raped a minor he met online.

Acting Chief Executive Officer for the CPFSA Laurette Adams-Thomas urged children not to form friendships online, as it may put them at risk.

She also urged children not to send nude photos to persons online.

Mrs. Adams-Thomas further called on parents to be more vigilant when monitoring the digital space their children use.

She urged parents to try to know the persons that their children are communicating with online, to monitor their social media pages and be on the lookout for potential predators.

She said if parents are not technologically savvy, they should seek guidance from other parents and their children’s teachers, on ways that they can keep them safe online.
