Disputing online safety grades

Door County Sheriff’s Department Juvenile Investigator Chris Neuville says the state deserves a better grade for its approach to online safety.  According to online security company Safewise, Wisconsin earned a “D” grade when it comes to keeping kids safe online. It joined Montana, Wyoming, Maine, and New Hampshire for having the lowest marks in the country. Neuville says parents should know that even though specific laws may not be on the books, the state and Door County, in particular, are very active when it comes to protecting kids from online predators.

The Safewise grades, which are posted online with this story, were determined by looking at each state’s laws for cyberbullying and sexting. Neuville added that any parent or child feeling like an online altercation was criminal can reach out to the Door County Sheriff’s Department for help.
