Manassas City Police Partner with Schools for Online Safety


City of Manassas, VA . . . Many parents wonder what their teenage son or daughter is posting online to one of the many social media sites. More importantly, they wonder who is watching what is posted and how to keep their children safe.

On Tuesday, April 30 from 7 to 8 p.m. in the Osbourn High School Auditorium, the Manassas City Police Department is partnering with Manassas City Public Schools to hold a candid discussion about the dangers of social media. Topics will include online sexual predators, general online safety, and unsafe behaviors such as cyber-bullying and “sexting.” Parents will learn how they can play an active role in their children’s social media experience, while keeping safety in mind. The session is open to parents of any aged teen.
