The Purcellville Police Department will hold a town hall meeting about online safety for children in support of October being National Cyber Security Awareness Month.
The event is 7-9 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 12, at the Purcellville Town Hall, 221 South Nursery Ave.
This program will provide parents with an understanding of online vulnerabilities to children’s safety. The event is facilitated by Matt Foosaner, a member of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children’s Law Enforcement Committee.
“The internet is an extension of the real world and as parents we must teach internet safety to our children whether it be about social media etiquette, online privacy, cyber bullying, viruses, phishing, and any other online threats,” Purcellville Mayor Kwasi Fraser said.
