Ada police warn students about cyber-bullying

Posted: Updated:

ADA, Okla. -- Ada police are hoping to keep cyber-bullying on the minds of both parents and students in Pontotoc County.

"It affects everybody... whether it's your child, or your child knows that this is happening to one of their friends, they need to know we're here to help," said Ada police Capt. Jason Potter.

The department will be holding a presentation at the Pontotoc County Technology Center Thursday evening for people 17 and older on the potential dangers of smartphone communication. It's called the "I'll Pass" project.

"We'll be covering cyber-bullying, sexting, sextortion, teen suicide. It's happening in Ada, and we are trying to get ahead of this," Potter said. "We just need to make sure everybody knows about it and how to protect themselves from it."

The presentation is scheduled for Thursday evening from 6 to 8 o'clock.
