GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) – The internet has opened up a new realm where parents must monitor their children to keep them safe, and a free class tonight helps residents do that more effectively.

Crime Stoppers of Mesa County is partnering with the Mesa County Sheriff’s Office to give a free internet safety class for parents and teens.

In this month’s session, Community Outreach Deputy Chad Williams will be talking about tools and resources that parents can use to teach their kids cyber security. The talk will cover social media, smartphones, cyberbullying and sexting prevention.

The sheriff’s office says it’s open to children of all ages, but it most applies to teens and pre-teens.

The class is tonight, Nov. 27, at 7:30 p.m. in the Grand Junction High School auditorium.
