Fighting Cyber-Crime


Internet crimes targeting children was a topic of discussion during a recent county commission meeting.

A presentation was made at that meeting by Sheriff-elect Steve Kelley. He explained how some internet crimes could lead to suicide, and discussed internet predators.

A program was approved, allowing law enforcement to conduct training sessions at schools. A memorandum of understanding between the county sheriff’s department and the state bureau of investigation was approved at that meeting. Funding will come from the bureau.

Budgeting services will be provided by attorney Chas Carroll.
