Attorney General’s office to host internet safety presentations this summer

The Delaware Attorney General’s Office announced its Summer internet
safety presentation schedule to help educate kids about ways to protect themselves online.

“During summer months kids can be at an increased risk of becoming the victim of a predator
because of the increase of time available to be online,” stated Patricia Dailey Lewis, Director of the
Family Division. “Being aware of dangers on the internet and how to avoid them is the critical first
step in protecting yourself.”

The Attorney General’s office will lead the following presentations this month:
Date Location
Monday, July 13 Appoquinimink Boys & Girls Club, Wilmington
Wednesday, July 15 Camp Barnes, Frankford
Wednesday, July 22 Greater Milford Boys & Girls Club, Milford
Monday, July 27 Greater Smyrna Clayton Boys & Girls Club, Smyrna
Tuesday, July 28 Greater Newark Boys & Girls Club, Newark
Wednesday, July 29 Claymont Boys & Girls Club, Claymont
Every time a child goes online, he or she is at risk of being contacted by a predator, with
statistics revealing that one in every seven children has been sexually solicited on the internet. That is
why an essential part of Attorney General Biden’s fight to protect children from predators is giving
kids the real-world tools they need to keep themselves safe online. Since spring 2007, Attorney
General Biden and his staff have led 34 internet safety presentations for more than 16,000 young
people, educators, and parents.
