The Burlington Police Department reminds the community, particularly parents and youth, that the use of cellular telephones and the internet may expose inappropriate photographs or video to other people. Once inappropriate material or personal information is possessed by another, it can be shared with others or otherwise exploited.

Authorities warn that parents should stay well-informed about the current issues their children are experiencing on and off the internet. Parents should understand and utilize social media in order to be familiar with the actions of their children. Parents should also regularly talk to their children about personal safety online and elsewhere.
