School Resource Officer Booker presents Router’s Birthday Surprise to elementary school students during “NetSmartz Month” in Farmington, NM.
The Internet provides endless educational opportunities for people of all ages. Unfortunately, it also provides opportunities for children to encounter online risks. The Farmington Police Department’s school resource officers (SROs) designated November as “NetSmartz Month” in an effort to combat these Internet dangers.
Approximately 3,000 elementary school students learned about Internet safety during presentations given throughout the month. The goal of the presentations is to equip school-age children with the tools necessary to identify and appropriately deal with potential Internet threats should they arise.
