“Our reality today is that every person around the world with a sexual interest in children ! has immediate access to any child on the internet. It’s like they are sitting next to our kids even though they could be across the globe.  We as parents and community members have to know who children are interacting with online. These offenders are very manipulative. If parents are not engaged – they will never see them coming until it’s too late” Detective Staff Sergeant Sharon Hanlon of the OPP Child Sexual Exploitation Unit.

Parents are reminded to take a proactive approach to help protect their children from online sexual exploitation by speaking with their children regarding internet safety. Parents can find resources to assist them at www.cybertip.ca.

If you have information regarding internet child exploitation and wish to provide information anonymously you can contact Crime Stoppers at www.ontariocrimestoppers.ca. Reporting information may also be made on the internet through www.cybertip.ca.

OPP partners with Georgian College to

launch ManUp program

The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) has partnered with Georgian College, Orillia campus and launched a pilot program called ManUp. The Georgian College ManUp team is undertaking the mission of establishing and maintaining a presence in their school while working towards social change in regards to the treatment of women in our community. The Georgian College ManUp team with support of the OPP, introduced this program by holding a community information session today at the Georgian College Orillia campus.

The ManUp program is meant to redefine what it means to “be a man” from a toxic tough guy definition to one of standing up for what is right regardless of the situation. It is dedicated to encouraging young men to stand up against violence against women, challenge inappropriate speech and behaviour from their peers and to set an example of appropriate behaviour for those around them.

As they move forward, the ManUp team will be reaching out to set up presentations throughout the Orillia Campus and other Georgia! n College campuses, Lakehead University, local sports teams, the local Police Services Boards and the Human Justice Regional Committee.
