OSROA is pleased to announce another 2018 conference keynote speaker, Detective Rich Wistocki.
Keeping our kids safe online is something that we as school safety professionals try our best to do, but it’s difficult. The technology keeps changing, new apps seem to pop up daily and – in many cases – the kids seem to grasp the tech better than we do! OSROA is bringing Rich all the way from Illinois to do his presentation entitled, “Sexting and Cyber-Bullying Investigations and Appropriate Consequences.”
This class will demonstrate how to investigate Sexting, Cyber-Bullying and Sextortion cases on social media. We will learn how to find out the identities of the persons involved. We will examine the places where inappropriate images are stored and how to eradicate the images. We will then discuss appropriate consequences and how to institute such consequences in a Restorative Justice/Diversion Program. We will also learn how to send the inappropriate images to The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, and their Child Victim Identification Program (NCMEC/CVIP). In this effort we will attempt to curtail the spread of the sexted images. This class will be tailored to both sworn and non-sworn school safety staff in attendance.
Detective Richard Wistocki is a law enforcement officer of 30 years. He has been with the Naperville Police Department for 28 years and spent the last 22 years as an Internet Crimes Investigator. He has been a SWAT operator and Sniper for the past 22 years.

Recently, Detective Wistocki has developed a FREE Online tool – JuvenileJusticeOnline.org – for SRO’s and School Officials to use in these case.
