SafetyNet in Primetime on NBC! Sunday Aug 12th – 6:30 pm

SafetyNet: Smart Cyber Choices®, our Internet safety program for teens and parents, makes its long-anticipated leap to television during a half-hour special report on NBC San Diego this Sunday immediately prior to the Closing Ceremonies of the Summer Olympics!

6:30 p.m.
Sunday, August 12
NBC – Channel 7

Sponsored by ESET, this program features our own Darlene Kanzler and SDPD’s Sgt. Chuck Arnold representing San Diego Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force as well as other guest speakers. Following this launch program, commercial spots will carry the message of SafetyNet to parents of teens throughout San Diego August 13th through December 15th. Also, a full-minute spot will provide Internet safety tips every Monday morning during the 6 a.m. morning news on NBC. Look for a thirty-second spot featuring ESET, SDPF and Assistant Chief Solis throughout the campaign. The call to action in all of these messages directs viewers to visit the SafetyNet site:, where parents can access the eLearning guide and learn how to keep their kids safe online.

The campaign is called Calling All Parents: Keep Your Kids Safe Online. We are grateful to ESET, NBC San Diego, and Departure for support and donated services that made this parent outreach program possible. We thank all our SafetyNet supporters, particularly Verizon and the AT&T Foundation for their generosity.

“To keep kids safe online, law enforcement needs the help of informed adults and children.” – SafetyNet
