TOPEKA | The Kansas attorney general's office says a program designed to help keep children safe on the Internet reached more than 56,000 kids this year.
The Netsmartz program uses activities to teach children ages 5 to 17 about dangers they might face in interacting with others on the Internet. The program also has advice for parents, teachers and law enforcement officers.
The attorney general's office began the Netsmartz program in 2006, working through the Kansas Alliance of Boys and Girls Clubs. Trainers visit classrooms and after-school programs to speak to students.
