Cyber Empowerment, Awareness and Reality; Children & Youth In The Virtual World was the topic Tuesday October 29, 2013 at the Safe Community Partnerships Forum hosted at the YMCA of Greater Toronto – Auditorium, 10 Grosvenor St, Toronto, Ontario

The keynote address description was as follows:
“Many community agencies are using social media to connect, engage and share information with the public, the media and each other. The technology available has allowed each agency, and any individual, the ability to develop a unique digital footprint to promote success and safety. But what happens when an agency or individual needs hep? What happens when the technology is being used to harass, bully, complain or accuse? The Toronto Police Service has been working with various community agencies to ensure everyone’s involvement when social media use goes awry. At this presentation, Toronto Police Service Social Media Officer Police Constable Scott Mills, Corporate Communications Information & Issues Management Section Head Meaghan Gray and Crisis Nurse Community Volunteer Anne Marie Batten will share the issues they’ve faced and their thoughts on ways in which community partners could move forward.”

We (the presenters) were very impressed with the level of interest in the subject from the attendees, and appreciate all the positive feedback. Special thank you to Toronto Police Constable Diana Korn-Hassani for networking everyone together to make this presentation happen.

Many people asked about operational use by Real Time Crisis of geo tagging technology commonly referenced to or confused with “geo-fencing”. Geo-fencing is generally interpreted as blocking the signal to a phone or service in an area. This has not been done, and would serve no real purpose for Real Time Crisis. Real Time Crisis has used software that can locate geo tags in photos posted by people in distress onto social media sites to pinpoint the locations of people posting suicide intentions on social media for the purpose of locating them to help them). The use of this technology can/will be used for situations where there are exigent circumstances of imminent danger of grievous bodily harm or death, and has been helpful in determining risk for particular cases in the past. The in depth article that was referred to in the presentation was published recently by Kenneth Lipp and can be read by clicking here

Interesting to note that in a number of police Internet safety suggestions, including Canada’s Royal Canadian Mounted Police, it is suggested to the public to “turn off geo location services”.
