Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : June 10th 2009
8 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, June 11, 2009 MB NEWS How to fight cyber bullying CYBER bullying is a major social problem, it's particularly wreaking havoc among the youth and it needs to stop. This was said by Drummoyne State Labor MP Angela D'Amore who is working with the NSW Police Force to help address this problem and to equip young people with the skills to avoid online bullying and cyber crime. Ms D'Amore recently visited Domremy College in Five Dock along with police school liaison officer Senior Constable Saskia Llowarch to discuss the impact of cyber crime. She said the popularity of online chat rooms and social networking sites have the potential to expose young people to threat- ening and dangerous situations. ''Teenagers are very tech-savvy, using mobile phones, internet chat rooms and social networking sites to keep in touch with their friends and meet people,'' Ms D'Amore said. ''But many young people just don't realise how easily that technology can be used by bullies and criminals to threaten them, embarrass them or cause them harm.'' The school visits are part of the NSW Police Force's school liaison program, which has carried out more than 7800 workshops in the past year on preventing cyber crime.
