Who We Are
SafetyNet: Smart Cyber Choices® is a collaborative program of the San Diego Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force and the San Diego Police Foundation. It is designed to help kids, parents, educators, and concerned adults learn how to keep kids safe online.
With each passing year, the seriousness of internet crimes involving children and teens continues to grow. In 2008, the San Diego Police Foundation in cooperation with the San Diego Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force responded by launching the SafetyNet® Program. Our focus is to help kids, parents, educators, and other concerned citizens learn to navigate their online lives safely BEFORE tragedy strikes. Since 2008, we have brought the SafetyNet® program to more than 230,000 students, ranging from kindergarten all the way through 12th grade, and to over 18,000 parents in the San Diego area, as well as other parts of Southern California.
The San Diego Police Foundation. Every Dime Fights Crime.
With the help of our donors and supporters, The San Diego Police Foundation promotes a safer San Diego online and on the streets. As part of this effort, the SDPF continues to expand the SafetyNet® program.
Formed in 1998, the SDPF helps insure that programs critical to public safety receive funding that is not available through the city’s budget. Whether it’s an evidence management system, advanced video streaming and recording, or other life-saving equipment and training, the SDPF raises much-needed funds to support the men and women of the San Diego Police Department.
The San Diego Police Foundation is an independent 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization providing support for public safety through grant funding for specialized equipment, training, and cooperative community programs.
The San Diego Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.
The San Diego Internet Crimes Against Children (SDICAC) Task Force is a collaboration of local, state and federal agencies who investigate offenders using the Internet, online communication systems, or other computer technology to sexually exploit children. The SDICAC supports efforts to identify, arrest, and prosecute online sexual predators, as well as educate the public about potential risks and safety measures. There are currently 61 regional Task Force agencies which are funded by the United States Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP).
