Computer & Internet Safety
As people use and rely on computers more and more at home, work and school, information technology is introducing new challenges to safety and security. The internet has new opportunities for communication but it also presents risks to personal information, children's safety and more.
Knowledge of the risks related to computers and the internet and prevention are the best ways to meet the challenge of computer and internet safety. The Port Hope Police Service offers information for adults and children to inform and protect our community.
