Borders College Students’ Association is hosting an internet safety day on Tuesday, October 18, from 11am to 2pm, supported by Police Scotland.

It coincides with Get Safe Online Day 2016, and constable Kirsty Neish said: “The use of the internet by young people is significant and a clear reflection of today’s society.

“They use it for social networking, gaming and for school projects.

“However, it is a route through which those who seek to harm young people are able to operate.

“Police Scotland is committed to combating internet criminality, raising awareness of potential online crimes and providing people with advice on how to reduce the risk of becoming a victim.”
