Cyber Crimes & Identity Theft

Internet Safety for Families

Cyber crimes are not only fast growing, but can also be overwhelming for parents to try to control. Smithfield Police Department is also concerned for the safety of our families, and wants to provide you with as many resources as possible to keep yourself informed. Parents can visit NetSmartz to educate themselves, and direct their children to be safer as they browse online.
