The next Youths Against Violence symposium will feature Special Victims Unit Detectives, Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners, County Health Department representatives and others who will discuss Sexting with our youths between the age 13-17. Just in case you are a parent and you do not know what sexting is: Sexting is sending, receiving, or forwarding sexually explicit messages, photographs or images, primarily between mobile phones. It may also include the use of a computer or any digital device. SPD has seen a recent rise in these cases over the past few months in the Sylvester area which has resulting in cases of statutory rape, physical assault, and mental illness and abuse. These cases historically has led to human trafficking and even societal panic and epidemics resulting from the spreading of Sexual Transmitted Diseases (STD) as seen in 1996 in Rockdale County, Ga. (http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/georgia/outbreak/). Parents are welcome and encouraged to attend. YAC Symposium: 2 December 2017 @ 2pm. Refreshments and open discussion with guest at 3pm. This is a video/audio taped podcast that will air in December. #SPDyac, #SPDCares.
