The Bay County Sheriff’s Office is offering Computer Cop software for parents beginning Monday. This software is the next step in an ongoing effort to capture internet predators and educate the public as to the dangers children face online.

Sheriff Frank McKeithen says the software is designed to assist parents in monitoring their children’s online activities. once downloaded to a computer, Computer Cop will check internet history, revealing to parents which websites have been visited on the computer.

Computer Cop also captures chat and email conversations and has a key word alert system and will email parents if a child has engaged in conversation, or attempted to visit a website, the parent has designated inappropriate. The program will alert parents to any inappropriate videos or images viewed on the computer, as well.

Any adult that would like a copy of Computer Cop can get one at the main office of the Bay County Sheriff’s Office at 3421 North Highway 77 in Panama City. There are only a limited number available at this time.
