New VPD program helps teens understand consequences of sexting – British Columbia – CBC News

The Vancouver Police Department is partnering with the Children of the Street Society to educate kids about sexting and to help them understand the emotional and psychological consequences.

It is an expansion of a 2015 pilot project.

The VPD’s youth justice programs coordinator Amy Powter says the program is necessary, as sexting — the act of sending or receiving intimate photographs or texts online — is a fairly significant issue for youths aged 12 to 17.
