Our TV News Partner, WVLT says the TBI is experiencing a sharp increase in child exploitation cases.
A special agent says investigators have received double the amount of tips in the last month. They say with kids spending more time online than usual with kids out of school, they say it’s an increased opportunity for them to be exposed to a child predator.
There are some things parents should do to keep their kids safe:
1: Read their chat messages
2: Don’t allow them to use the internet in their bedroom or in private
3: Use parental controls on their devices
If you feel like your child is in imminent danger contact your local law enforcement.
