Internet Safety Night, Oct. 23, 2007

Internet Safety Night occurred on Oct. 23, 2007, from 6:30 to 8:30.

Internet Safety Night is a nationwide event that brings information and resources to students, parents and members of the community to help us all stay safer online. We talk about online predators, cyber-bullying, identity theft and other Internet-related issues. The goal is for communities to pull together local experts and resources — students, parents, teachers, law enforcement and community members — to begin a discussion about the importance of Internet safety. These local discussions, occurring simultaneously all around the country, then connect to the national host site in Columbia, Mo. for the featured speakers and other resources and tools that families can use to stay safe. Participants at any of the local events can see, hear, ask and answer questions in real time with participants at any of the other sites!

Featured speaker included:

  • Chris Pickering, Chief Investigator, Missouri Attorney General’s Office
  • Joel Heinrichs, CEO, Lightspeed Systems, Inc.
  • Lindsay Casmaer, Miss Missouri

Other speakers included:

  • Lt. Joe Laramie, Missouri Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force
  • Det. Andy Anderson, Mid-Missouri Internet Crimes Task Force
  • John Wood, US Attorney for the Western District of Missouri
  • Lou Ann Stovall, FBI Kansas City Cyber Crimes Task Force
