Internet Safety Resources

Michigan’s Attorney General, Mike Cox, will begin providing Internet Safety seminars for parents and children in grades K-8 beginning in the 2007 – 2008 school year.  Here are some sites recommended for parents to visit.

https://www.protectmichild.com/ The Michigan Children’s Protection Registry is a secure database of protected e-mail addresses and other electronic contact points such as: fax numbers, mobile phone numbers (SMS), and instant messenger IDs. It allows Michigan’s parents and schools to register electronic contact points that children may access.

 http://www.familywatchdog.us – We invite you to use our free service to locate registered sex offenders in your area. Just enter an address and we’ll show a map. You can click on the squares that appear and see photos (where available) addresses, convictions and other information about the offender.

Our notification service is very simple. You specify up to three addresses that you want to watch and the distance around those addresses. We do the rest. We update our data daily from multiple state sex offender registries. As soon as a convicted sex offender registers an address in your area, we will alert you. It’s that easy.
