Web safety programme for Northern Ireland children launched

By Michael McHugh

A thousand leaders providing child protection in Northern Ireland are to be trained in a new e-safety package.

VIRTUAL REALity is an online awareness programme setting out key messages for children and teenagers, and educating their parents.

The PSNI has already trained more than 100 officers.

Detective chief superintendent George Clarke said: "With the ever-changing way in which children and young people communicate, it is imperative that we have this multi-agency initiative which ensures that everyone involved in the protection of children and young people have the consistent approach to e-safety messages."
