New Computer Cop Software Protects Kids Online


ROCK COUNTY (WIFR) -- Parents can now keep tabs on what our kids are looking at online with free software.

Rock County Sheriff Robert Spoden is introducing Computer Cop, a new, free monitoring software that checks our computers for sexually explicit words and inappropriate pictures or videos.

Sheriff Spoden says this will help protect kids from online sexual predators and cyber bullies.

"Parents I think, to a certain degree, feel frustrated and feel like they have a lack of control over really a device that can be really dangerous. Obviously it has a lot of wonderful information. but we all know today, there are people out there that want to hurt our children are out there," said Sheriff Spoden.
