Cyber Safety Pasifika brings Internet Awareness to the Northern Mariana Islands
Friday, 12 September 2014 13:13

The CNMI Department of Public Safety (DPS) is proud to announce the roll out of Cyber Safety Pasifika project in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands.

The project is aimed at protecting communities, children, youth and other vulnerable people from the impact of cyber-crime. It is primarily an educational program with back up crime reporting and investigational support through Australia and New Zealand.

Cyber Safety Pasifika is collaboration between the Pacific Islands Chiefs of Police (PICP) Secretariat, Pacific Transnational Crime Network (PTCN) and the High Tech Crime Operations (HTCO), Crime Prevention team, of the Australian Federal Police (AFP).

The Pacific Islands Chiefs of Police (PICP) endorsed Cyber Safety Pasifika as a high priority police project at their meeting in Pohnpei in 2011, and it was launched on the Gold Coast, Australia in 2012.

“These presentations equate to some 22,000 children and young people having been exposed to Cyber Safety awareness and presentations have been made to 800 community members since the program was launched in 2012” Federal Agent Melissa Northam (Australian Federal Police) stated about the launch.

DPS is very grateful to the PICP, the AFP and the presenters for coming to the CNMI to help with this very important project. In particular, DPS wishes to thank the delegates of the PICP for their support in getting the program delivered across the Pacific.

A two person team from the Australian Federal Police High Tech Crime Operations and the Pacific Islands Chiefs of Police Secretariat spent a hectic three days on the Saipan delivering a workshop to 8 CNMI DPS Officers. The group was also able to deliver awareness sessions to Mariana’s High School, Kagman High School, and Cha Cha Ocean View Middle School.

Internet awareness sessions will begin to be a part of the local Cyber Safety Pasifika team and will roll out island wide to all schools.
