DOWNINGTOWN, PA — Are you concerned about keeping your children safe online in this rapidly changing digital world? If so, the Chester County Intermediate Unit (CCIU) invites you to attend the Chester County Safe Schools Summit: Parenting in a Digital World on March 30, 2023, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. via Zoom.

The event will provide parents with the opportunity to learn from Detective Bernard Martin and Danielle Moore, education and outreach specialist for the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General, two experienced professionals with a passion for internet safety. At the Chester County Safe Schools Summit, parents will learn about current social media apps and platforms, increase their awareness of digital interaction threats and identify steps they can take to keep their children safe. Martin and Moore will explore the digital connections children make through social media, gaming systems and various online applications. There will also be time allotted for a question-and-answer session.

Detective Martin has over 16 years of experience in law enforcement with a Ph.D. in leadership. He is also an adjunct professor at West Chester University, where he teaches law enforcement technology, criminal profiling and policing. Joining the Office of the Attorney General in 2021,  Moore has experience in political and educational settings. She earned her Bachelor of Arts in International Affairs from Lafayette College in 2016 and her Master of Public Policy (MPP) from Temple University in 2021, with a particular interest in mental health & education policy. Together, they bring significant professional experience and expertise to the topic of internet safety.
