Mainz Police Headquarters - Department 15 "Central Prevention"

Department 15 "Central Prevention" of the Mainz Police Headquarters explains current phenomena of cybercrime (including romance scamming, sextortion, fake emails on WhatsApp) in several short radio interviews. This year's Safer Internet Day focuses on the education and protection of children and young people under the motto "Let's talk about porn". However, this sensitive topic should also be borne in mind by adults who surf the World Wide Web without knowing that they may be liable to prosecution or become victims of a crime.

Several radio stations will be taking part in the campaign:

Antenne Mainz, RPR1 and SWR Aktuell will broadcast the interviews with descriptions and prevention tips on various forms of cybercrime during the SID.
