MONMOUTH COUNTY PROSECUTOR’S OFFICE PRESENTS ON ONLINE SAFETY, CYBERBULLYING

October 19, 2016

On Wednesday, October 19th, the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office held a special presentation for CBA’s freshmen class on Internet safety, cyberbullying, and thoughtful use of technology.
In today’s interconnected world, it can be easy for our young men to forget the consequences of their actions online. Detective John Sosdian, through his presentation, reminded students of the ever-present dangers that exist online—from the actions of others (i.e. online predators, fraudulent social media accounts) to their own conduct (i.e. illicit posting on social media, sharing inappropriate content, and the like).
Sosdian emphasized the need to seek counsel in cases of bullying, and to take action instead of remaining a bystander. He also explained the laws and liabilities associated with cyberbullying, “sexting,” and inappropriate use of social media.

Remembering these important messages will help our freshmen forgo the unfortunate repercussions that far too many of today’s high school students experience.

Moreover, it will help them recognize and respond to improper conduct as they continue in learning how to become “men for others.”
