Offered through the Homeland Security Management Institute at Monroe Community College, the interactive seminar will discuss various Web sites including MySpace and Facebook; terminology such as common acronyms used online; blogging; text messaging; and IM'ing (sending instant messages).
The seminar, taught by former Greece Police Captain Debra Dwyer, is geared toward parents, educators, school resource officials, police officers, firefighters, emergency medical services personnel, andanyone in the community interested in protecting children's safety.
