SAPOL’s State Community Engagement Section and Special Crimes Investigation Branch have developed an exciting virtual reality experience Beware What You Share to help those above the age of 7 make smarter choices online.
The interactive computer-generated experience immerses the user in real scenarios they may encounter online and presents different options on how to respond, prompting them to think about what they are sharing. It simulates how easily strangers may pose as friends or peers to innocently source personal details or inappropriate images.
Immersive technology such as this is groundbreaking for SAPOL and it is hoped the Beware what you share VR becomes a popular and powerful educational tool for both parents and their children. Check it out at the SAPOL stand during this year’s Royal Adelaide Show! Find us at G40 in the south eastern end of Jubilee Pavilion.
