The Education Foundation of Downers Grove District 58 is pleased to announce that child cyber crime expert Detective Rich Wistocki will return to District 58 to provide a parent education seminar, called "Cyber Safety for Children," on Thursday, Feb. 13 at 7 p.m. at Herrick Middle School. No RSVP is required to attend this meeting; just show up. This seminar will help parents with important issues such as:
-Cyberbullying and protecting your family from cyberbullies
-Understanding what is on your child's phone applications
-The dangers of posting photos to Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat as well as online gaming
-File sharing and video sharing online
-Controlling and monitoring your child's cell phone and home computers
Detective Wistocki has previously presented to District 58 parents, most recently in winter 2018, and received very positive feedback.
In addition, for the first time in District 58, Detective Wistocki will conduct student assemblies for all Herrick and O'Neill students on Thursday, Feb. 13 during the school day. These presentations will cover much of the same content as the parent seminar, but in a middle school-friendly format.
Detective Wistocki has dedicated his career to helping children by tirelessly pursuing, apprehending and prosecuting child predators. As an active cyber crimes detective, he educates law enforcement using cutting edge investigative techniques, as well as parents and students on responsible digital activity. Detective Wistocki is a 30-year, decorated member of law enforcement. He spent 22 of those years as an Internet crimes investigator for the Naperville Police Department.
