Internet and social media safety seminar

Concord Baptist Church is hosting a free internet and social media safety seminar September 16 at 10 a.m. All are welcome to attend – youth, parents and seniors.

The guest speaker will be Joe Ryan, a former deputy sheriff and current education coordinator with the South Carolina Attorney General’s Office in the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. He provides community education and outreach to children, parents and community members in a proactive effort to prevent the victimization of children through the internet. He creates and delivers presentations regarding subject matter relating to these crimes such as online predators, social media, cyberbullying, inappropriate communication, and other topics as needed.

Sheriff Mueller and representatives from the Cherokee County Sheriff ’s Department will also be at the event to provide important information specific to Cherokee County.
