“Be Smart with your Kids’ Smartphone” presentations educate parents, caregivers, and teachers and administrators on the latest social media apps that offenders are using to target and manipulate kids. Special agents who investigate violent crimes against children will show parents how technology has been used in cases from the Jacksonville area, and provide guidance to protect other children from being victimized. Please note, the content of these presentations may not be appropriate for youth, and parental discretion is advised.
