ComputerCOP: Parental Internet Monitoring Software

Floyd County Prosecutor Keith Henderson, in collaboration with Floyd County Sheriff Darrell Mills, has teamed-up with ComputerCOP, a New York based software company that specializes in law enforcement outreach, parental monitoring, and forensic examination, to distribute software as part of an Internet safety initiative.

ComputerCOP is part of the community outreach programs of numerous Sheriffs, Prosecutor’s Offices, and Police Departments across the country. This software is compatible with Windows 7, Vista, and XP machines in both the 64 and 32 bit environments. ComputerCOP searches for and displays images, videos, and text for parents or guardians to review, which enables parents to quickly search and monitor the online activity of their children.

“Our lives and those of our children are increasingly affected by society’s enthusiasm for digital entertainment and media,” said Mr. Henderson. “The Internet is a powerful tool for finding and disseminating information, but it also has the potential to be a dangerous place for children and young adults. It is my belief, along with Sheriff Mills, that ComputerCOP is a valuable tool for helping children understand the dangers of online predators, and with careful parental monitoring, it can be used to prevent or intercept other potential dangers, such as cyber-bullying,” he said.

If you are a parent or guardian who is interested in obtaining the ComputerCOP software for use in keeping your family safe and informed of potential online dangers, please contact Erynn McInnis at (812) 948-5422 to reserve a copy.
