Online Safety Awareness Initiative

New Image“There seems to be a disturbing trend among our youth to say hateful and injurious things to one another while trying to hide behind what they believe to be the anonymity of the internet and its many applications. As both a father and Attorney General, I am hoping we can make a difference by educating our students on the law and on law enforcement’s ability to track online posts.“ -Attorney General Jim Hood, State of Mississippi
