This course examines recent trends among teens involving “sexting” and how law enforcement can obtain and document probable cause for an arrest and effectively deal with juveniles who manufacture and distribute inappropriate material.  Participants will learn how to train parents through an educational website and give juveniles consequences through restorative justice education in lieu of adjudication.

The class will learn how to develop a safety plan for dealing with offenders to avoid cruel and unusual punishment for a youthful misjudgment and how to educate parents on the tools available for monitoring their children.  Instruction will cover search and seizure of cell phone evidence and recovery, computer evidence and recovery, email attachments, social networks, and current laws governing the possession, manufacturing and distribution of child pornography, obscenity and harmful material.

The course will be conducted by Det. Rich Wistocki of the Naperville Police Department.  Rich has served as an Internet Crimes investigator for over 20 years.  

Participants need to bring a thumb drive / During this class participants will be informed on a private vendor’s data management system.  This is for your informational awareness and it does imply that MTU#1/MTU#2 endorses the system.
