Computer crime campaign

Date: November 21, 2006

McGruff the Crime Dog and the "Take A Bite Out Of Cyber Crime" campaign today announce "Junior CyberGuards," a major educational outreach program set to launch in early 2007. The goal is to encourage middle school-aged kids to get smarter about cyber crime and empower them to protect themselves, their families and others in their community.

At 12:30pm today, New York City Schools Chancellor Joel I. Klein, National Crime Prevention Council Vice President of Programs Ann Harkins, and Chief Marketing Officer Council Principal Don Scott will hold a news conference at the Grand Street Settlement Computer Clubhouse (80 Pitt Street in Manhattan) to raise awareness about preventing cyber crime, and the growing need for children and teenagers to be more cyber-safe. The Clubhouse was founded by Intel Corp. -- a technology innovator and leading sponsor of the Take A Bite Out Of Cyber Crime campaign -- in 2000 to give lower-income kids greater access to computers and the Internet. The Grand Street Settlement site is now a part of a global network of 107 Clubhouses that stretch from Panama to Jordan to Taiwan.
