John Pizzuro, Commander of the NJSP’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force; Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher Gramiccioni; and Dr. Steven Tobias, Director of the Center for Child & Family Development in Morristown, NJ.
“Sadly, the holidays are an opportune time for cyber child predators. Our award-winning news department has assembled timely and important strategies to protect kids, whether on social media sites, online apps or video game platforms,” Brand Manager Anne Gress said in a release. “Keeping children safe is a top priority of New Jersey 101.5, and this information is must-hear (and must-see on Facebook Live) before buying kids any digital holiday gifts.”
Scott, Pizzuro, Gramiccioni and Tobias will answer live, call-in questions from listeners throughout the hour. As part of the Facebook Live stream, New Jersey State Police Troopers will be available to answer questions and provide resources.
