The Education Foundation of Downers Grove District 58 will host child cyber crime expert Det. Rich Wistocki, who will return to District 58 to provide a parent education seminar, “Cyber Safety for Children,” at 7 p.m. Feb. 13 at Herrick Middle School, 4435 Middaugh Ave, Downers Grovee.
This seminar will help parents with important issues such as:
• Understanding phone applications.
• The dangers of posting photos to Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat as well as online gaming.
• File sharing and video sharing online.
• Controlling and monitoring your child’s cell phone and home computers
In addition, Wistocki will conduct student assemblies for all Herrick and O’Neill students on Feb. 13 during the school day. These presentations will cover much of the same content as the parent seminar, but in a middle school-friendly format.
Wistocki has dedicated his career to helping children by pursuing, apprehending and prosecuting child predators. As an active cyber crimes detective, he educates law enforcement using cutting edge investigative techniques, as well as parents and students on responsible digital activity.
