ProtecTeens Resource Kit

There is evidence that thousands of Idaho children receive unwanted sexual material or solicitations over the Internet every year. Our law enforcement community has been extremely successful in tracking down, arresting and locking up many of these sexual predators. We hope that ProtecTeens will help parents understand the magnitude of the dangers, and take an active role in protecting their children from Internet predators. This video was developed with the Idaho Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (ICAC) and Idaho Secretary of State Ben Ysursa to help Idahoans learn about the dangers of sexual Internet predators. Idaho residents who would like a free copy of the ProtecTeens DVD and resource may order one by clicking here.
