Protecting Kids from Internet Predators

A police program in the Coulee Region is aimed at helping parents protect their kids from Internet predators.

The Coulee Region Children’s Internet Protection Task Force started in 2006, officers arrested-18 people since then.

Taxpayers foot the bill for the program.

The classes are held in local schools and focus on teaching parents how to use monitoring software.

"This is really important, Linnea Moren from the La Crosse Police said. “We're really excited to get these classes going and have these parents learn about what they can do to help themselves and their children."

The program is slated to start this spring.
