Sextortion - What is it? How can you keep children safe?


  • Tuesday, May 14, 6-8 p.m.

Sextortion is a type of online sexual exploitation where victims are coerced into providing sexually explicit images or videos often in compliance with a threat being made against them or their loved ones.

Join us for a panel discussion highlighting the issue of extortion trends in victimization, recent cases, prevention tips, and what to do if you or a loved one becomes a target. 

Sponsored by the US Attorney Office, the FBI, and the Bloomington Police Department. 

Parents, teachers, school officials, older youth, and community members are all encouraged to attend. This event is FREE and open to the public. RSVPs encouraged via the event link below.
