Suffolk Constabulary is supporting Safer Internet Day 2017, which takes place tomorrow with the theme 'Be the change: unite for a better internet'.

Led by the UK Safer Internet Centre, the day sees hundreds of organisations get involved to promote the safe use of digital technology for young people.

Globally, Safer Internet Day calls on youngsters, parents, carers, teachers, companies and the wider community to join together in helping to create a better internet.

The UK Safer Internet Centre provides resources and tools for getting involved at www.saferinternetday.org.uk.

The site gives advice on how to use the internet safely and guidance on how to have conversations around issues such as grooming and cyber bullying.
