Local Law Enforcement, Schools Continue Battles With Social Media

Dealing with some aspect of social media is an everyday occurrence in Clinton schools.
That's the message from school resource office Mike Bennett. He indicates they deal with everything from bullying to sexting and anonymous messages.
From a law enforcement standpoint, Officer Bennett says social media is here to stay and indicates they talk to the students about the impacts social media can have on things that happen to you in the future.
A lot of awareness has been raised with the youth in recent years of the consequences of sexting. Officer Bennett says that is actually a crime if those texts or snap chat messages are intercepted.
Bennett says he is always in contact with the youth in the school buildings and feels fortunate a lot of the student body is comfortable approaching him about the things going on on social media.
