Officials notified of explicit behavior online

The Door County Sheriff’s Office and Sturgeon Bay Police Department merged to conduct an investigation into online accounts that have been soliciting sexually explicit material from teenagers. The departments were notified that the solicitation came from several online accounts, specifically on the SnapChat app. 


The investigation concluded that the accounts which made the requests are located in India. Local officials encourage parents to educate themselves about different online platforms and to talk with their children about the dangers of sharing information and befriending unknown people online. 

Both departments will continue to monitor and attempt to identify as many possible accounts as they can. They encourage those with concerns to contact them, or to notify them if an incident arises. Information on online application safety can be found here.
