Hello and welcome to my website linking you to internet safety for children of all ages.
My name is Sarah and I am a mum of 3 boys. My boys are in primary and secondary education. I am based in North Yorkshire.
I have recently retired from CID on medical grounds. Following a role in the response unit, I worked as a detective for the last 13 years investigating a wide variety of serious crime, including prosecuting defendants who possessed and distributed indecent images of children. I specialised in interviewing children and vulnerable victims of all areas of crime including sexual offences. During my policing role as well as my Policing, interview and crime studies, I also have attended various certificated courses which include Understanding Child Sex Offenders Behavioural Analysis, Interviewing Children & Vulnerable adults and I have completed a Specialist Child Abuse Investigation Development Programme.
During my police career I have gained a wide experience of the affects of online crime and internet safety. I am passionate about ensuring children of all ages are enabled to use the internet and social media safely, productively and effectively.
I appreciate that many parents, teachers and carers fully understand the risks that are widely published about the risks that are online for children. However, the feedback I have received is, you know the risks but how can you support your children with internet safety? how do I keep up with their digital world?
All you need to do is take your every day parenting skills online.
How? Let me help you.
After supporting my own children starting to play on digital devices, go online, advance with social media and along with my police training I decided I was not ready to retire! I can help children, parents, vulnerable adults and teaching professionals travel the digital world safely.
I can come to your school, youth club, community centre, parent support group, village hall or business premises to deliver a presentation on internet safety, delivering what I have learned about internet safety and how to parent in a digital world! I can provide my DBS registration.
