BE THE COP Campaign – Resource for child online safety
Communication Authority of Kenya (CA) has a child online protection (COP) campaign dubbed ‘Be the Cop’. This is a localized initiative based on The International Telecommunications Union’s (ITU) Child Online Protection initiative which has global guidelines for children; parents, guardians and educators; industry and policy makers.
The campaign which was launched in August 2015, seeks to protect children from vulnerabilities that they are faced with online. Be the Cop aims to raise awareness of the types of crime that children are exposed to in cyberspace through highlighting the role that parents, guardians and teachers need to play to protect children in cyberspace. The campaign also seeks to provide avenues of redress should one encounter this type of crime.
