It’s a growing problem, and Deschutes County is not immune from it. Sexual predators are on the prowl on the Internet and they are looking for kids: “Some of the current statistics show that one in seven kids are sexually solicited on line, and four percent of kids are aggressively solicited on line. That means they were asked to leave their home or meet with someone.” Deschutes County Sheriffs Detective Zack Neeman says the Internet has leveled the playing field so it's as much a problem in the smaller towns across America as the big cities. Neeman says parents need to be very aware of the risks in social networking, and that kids and parents should keep personal information private. Do not share your physical location, phone numbers, or dates of birth on line. Neeman says there are ways to kids to participate in social networking, but to do it safely.
