As a new school year gets underway, with fresh debate over the suitability of smartphones in schools, loveit coverit are looking into the impact mobile phones are having on our younger generation. We spoke to Jan Bloomfield from Essex Police to get her views on safety, cyberbullying, and the most effective ways to protect children on these issues and steer them to make the best decisions.
Thanks for speaking with us Jan. If cases of cyber bullying are reported to police, who normally seeks police intervention? Is it usually parents, teachers, or the child themselves?
