The District Attorney's Office created the "Protecting Children Online Safety Campaign" in order to shield children from dangerous predators online. We are working hand-in-hand with law enforcement, parent groups, children’s organizations and private businesses to launch a major public outreach program to give parents the tools they need to keep their children safe.

Currently, our advisory committee has members from the San Diego District Attorney's Office, San Diego Police Department, San Diego Sheriff's Office, Ninth District PTA, San Diego Unified Council of PTA's, Promises 2 Kids (formerly Child Abuse Prevention Foundation), YMCA Youth & Family Services, Cubic Corporation and Di Zinno Thompson. We plan to meet regularly to discuss how to best reach parents and start protecting children. Contact us if you would like to schedule a speaking engagement. Meet our Partners.
