People in Wisbech warned "Think before you type"
7:25am 8th October 2014
People in Wisbech are being told to think before they write offensive messages on social media.
Cambridgeshire Police are trying to raise awareness of cyber crime, with a new initiative.
They say it’s not just about fraud emails - a lot of people don't know that the things they say online could be considered illegal.
Detective Superintendent Kevin Vanterpool says if you wouldn't say it someone's face, you shouldn't say it online.
“It’s very easy to say something just by typing a few letters on a text or posting something. It’s actually much more difficult to have that conversation face to face. On one level it is easy but we would advocate thinking what you’re saying and the impact those messages could have.”
