The Grand Junction Police Department is hosting a free cyber security bootcamp for teens this Saturday



GRAND JUNCTION, Colorado (KKCO) – The Grand Junction Police Department has partnered with the Denver FBI Field Office to bring this bootcamp to Grand Junction for the first time. It takes place on Saturday, October 30th, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 555 Ute Avenue.

Most teenagers are unaware of the digital footprint they are leaving online that compromises the security of their personal information and their physical safety.

The FBI’s Denver Field Office Chief Security Officer will present ways you can stay safe online and on your personal device. It is an interactive presentation where teenagers and parents are encouraged to bring their personal devices for hands-on demonstrations of the security functions to better protect themselves and their private data.

“The Denver Field Security Officer will provide information that we all hear so much about, but we will dive into how to protect ourselves from online predators, how to identify an online predator. Are you providing more information than you? think it’s you when you’re online, ”said Heidi Davidson, GJPD community outreach specialist. “Like your location.”

Although the registration was closed on the 22nd, there are still places available. Contact Heidi Davidson directly at (970) 549-5114 or email her at [email protected] to register for free.
