Social Media & Internet Critical Incident Investigations for SRO’s, Youth Officers, and Gang Officers
Having presented internet safety and digital literacy to over 750 schools and 500,000 students throughout Canada and the United States, we have heard one message loud and clear from police school resource officers, youth investigators, and gang investigators, “too much of our time is now dedicated to dealing with student-based social media conflict and critical incidents, but we have never received in-depth training on what youth are doing online.” If you are a law enforcement agency looking to provide officers with the most up-to-date information on what youth are doing online, then this program is for you! We also talk about officer safety and what members can do to protect themselves online from youth and young adults who are using technology, social media, and the internet as a weapon to target law enforcement. This program will also dovetail nicely into any school-based threat assessment model. The presenter, a current online investigator, brings 30 years of law enforcement experience and 7 open-source intelligence certifications to this program.

The White Hatter Experience
What Makes Our Programs Special
We are recognized industry leaders and experts in the fields of internet and social media safety and digital literacy training. Students, teachers, principals, parents, counsellors, business professionals, and law enforcement throughout North America have all agreed that our presentation was the “best" and most "in-depth" they have experienced on the topic. Our presentations stand out as a “must-have" program for elementary and high school students, thus why our programs have been heard by more Students and have won more awards, than any other programs in Canada over the past three years.
Our program is not just about internet safety, it’s also about digital citizenship and literacy, online ethics, online critical thinking, and the challenges surrounding privacy, cyberbullying, and what we can do now to protect their digital footprint. The goal of our programs is not to instill fear or negate opportunities, rather to enlighten, empower, and enable participants to make informed online choices.
Law Enforcement Experience
While others in our industry seek out police endorsements or advertise that they have or do work with law enforcement, we are comprised of current or past law enforcement professionals, and bring this experience and pedigree to all of our programs.
We Stay Current
We stay current on everything we do, and we have documented evidence that our presentation positively changes internet behaviour. We are also very proud of the fact that our programs have intervened in the lives of many, especially in our grade school programs where students who were contemplating suicide or self-harm as an option because they were in crisis or being targeted by cyberbullying or sexting went wrong issues. These students heard our empathetic message, reached out to us for help, and in each and every case (often working with their school) we were able to get them the help that they needed.
Bring Our Own Equipment
For our In-person programs, we bring all our own equipment (laptop, projector, microphone, and auditorium sound system); all you need to provide is a table, screen, electrical cord, and power source.
