West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner David Jamieson will be marking Safer Internet Day 2016 tomorrow (February 9) as part of his pledge to bring hidden crimes out into the open.
Across the country, hundreds of organisations are promoting safe and responsible internet use for children and young people.
This year’s theme is raising awareness about online hate and there will be a number of activities going on nationwide promoting a kinder, more respectful and inclusive internet.
West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner David Jamieson said: “Crime is changing not falling and it is vital that we all educate ourselves when it comes to emerging offences such as cyber crime, abusive trolling and online fraud.
“We all must be aware of the dangers online and educate those around us, especially young people.
“I am committed to tackling online crime in all its forms – from hackers trying to crack into a business to groomers trying to lure in a child. To tackle these hidden crimes we must bring them out into the light.”
