Texas - Today, Child Shield USA is eager to announce
it has joined a national campaign formed in an effort to educate
parents about child safety implications of new online technologies.
Stop Internet Predators, a project of Stop Child Predators, is
a coalition focusing primarily on Google's "Street View"
technology and the potential dangers to children's privacy and
safety if misused.
viewing images of children on Street View, I decided it was time
to do more to stand up for children's safety," said
John Raskob, President of Child Shield USA.
"New technologies like this one could allow for children
and parents to be unknowingly in harm's way."
Shield USA's primary goal is to reduce the alarming numbers
of lost, missing, abducted, and runaway children in America. Their
guaranteed and proven child safety programs provide parents with
an array of easy-to-follow educational materials that will empower
their children with important knowledge that can help prevent
a tragedy. Child Shield USA is happy to integrate new Internet
safety materials into their educational kits for parents.
"We are very glad to add Child Shield USA
to our growing list of partners," said Stacie
Rumenap, Executive Director of Stop Child Predators.
"Child Shield USA has a reputation as 'America's Protector
of Children' and we are pleased they have joined the efforts of
Stop Internet Predators."
Shield USA supports the petition Stop Internet Predators
has led and encourages all parents to call elected officials to
exercise restriction options in order to protect our children's
privacy and safety.
