Parents Encouraged to Monitor Children's Online Activity

By  | 

Philadelphia, Miss. Philadelphia's police chief has a warning for all parents after a cyberstalking incident this past week.

Police Chief Grant Myers says that all parents should be mindful of their child's activity on social media. Chief Myers says this will hopefully help prevent conflicts from getting out of hand and resulting in threats or worse.

"They should just look for any kind of illegal activity or anything that it seems could lead to illegal activity," Myers says. "Posting by any friends or acquaintances on social media."

Philadelphia police say a 15-year old boy was arrested this past week after posting a video about a gun on social media, threatening another student.
