POLICE

At CyberSmarties, we recognise the pivotal role of police forces in creating a secure digital environment for children. Since our inception in 2017, we have partnered with law enforcement agencies to build a safer online world. As we expand globally, these partnerships are essential to our mission. Here’s how we achieve this together. Imagine a world where children can explore the internet safely, free from the threats of cyberbullying, online predators, and inappropriate content. CyberSmarties.com is committed to making this vision a reality. Our unique partnerships with police forces worldwide enable us to safeguard young users effectively. By collaborating with authorities such as An Garda Síochána (National Police Force of Ireland), we gain invaluable insights into local risks, allowing us to tailor our protective measures to the specific needs of each community.

Did you know

that through our collaboration with the National Police Force of Ireland, we have developed advanced strategies to combat online dangers? This cooperation has empowered us to proactively address threats and enhance the safety of our platform. Furthermore, our partnership with the New Zealand Department of Internal Affairs' initiative, Keep it Real Online, underscores our dedication to promoting digital citizenship and cyber safety on a global scale. We work closely with these respected institutions to enrich our educational content and bolster our security protocols.

What if you could play a crucial role in this mission? By joining forces with CyberSmarties.com, you can contribute to building a safer digital environment for children worldwide. We believe that early engagement with law enforcement helps build trust within communities. Through our proposed “Police Page,” police forces can upload age-appropriate videos showcasing the daily lives of officers, offering safety tips, and more. This initiative not only educates children but also fosters a sense of security and trust from a young age.
