The Internet and Your Child

A free one day class is now being offered for people who oversee children’s online activities. This class is a hands-on guide through your computer and the Internet. You will learn what your kids already know about the Internet.

Classroom topics include; computer and hardware basics, getting connected to the Internet, newsgroups, hacking, Internet fraud, Internet chats, searching the Internet for information on you, searching your computer to see what they have been doing, and Windows Basics.

Also covered in this class are; Internet addressing, e-mail, protecting your privacy, sex crimes, and filtering/blocking unwanted sites with software. Participants will observe an instructor chat “live” on the Internet as a child.

Stop Thief

Great for kids! Juvenile Department Counselors would love to be invited to your 6th grade class to show our “Stop Thief” video and talk to you about the consequences of shoplifting and becoming involved with the Juvenile Department. The video is 20 minutes long and well worth your time to watch. Parents who have seen this video in our Theft Information Class have strongly suggested that the Juvenile Department get this information out to youth in schools so they have the information necessary to make good decisions.

If you would like us to talk to your class please contact Scott Sheffer at (503) 846-3568.

Juvenile Department Overview

The Juvenile Department has a PowerPoint Presentation that we are willing to bring out to your agency, school, class, staff meeting, community gathering, etc. to talk about Juvenile Department programs and services offered. The presentation and time for answering questions will take approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour.

If you are interested in having representatives from the Juvenile Department talk to your group please contact:  LaRoy LaBonte at (503) 846-4703.

Measure 11

Measure 11 is an Oregon law that went into effect on April 1, 1995 and sets mandatory minimum sentences for certain felony crimes. Anybody, 15 years of age and older, who commits those crimes is subject to prosecution in the adult criminal courts, and if convicted (found guilty) could be given the mandatory minimum sentences. Presentations on this law are available by contacting LaRoy LaBonte at (503) 846-4703.
