In presenting Internet Safety and Digital Literacy to over 750 schools, and 560,000 students, throughout Canada and the United States, we have heard one message loud and clear from police school resource officers, youth Investigators, and gang investigators – “too much of our time is now dedicated to dealing with student-based social media conflict and critical incidents, but we have never received in-depth training in how to do so professionally.” We have now developed a 2hr training package specifically designed for law enforcement, that will provide the information and basic skills needed to develop investigational best practices when dealing with student-based social media conflict or online critical incidents. We bring over 30yrs of law enforcement-based investigative experience, as well as 7 open-source intelligence and social media investigation certifications to the design of this program. This training will survive the scrutiny of a parent, board of inquiry, or a court of law, and encourages a coordinated incident response between the police, the school, and the school district. Given that the design of our program is based upon the premise that “principles stay the same diverse in application”, this training will also “dovetail” nicely into any school threat assessment model.

While others in our industry seek out police endorsements or advertise that they have or do work with law enforcement, we are comprised of current or past law enforcement professionals, and bring this experience and pedigree to all of our programs.
We stay current on everything we do, and we have documented evidence that our presentation positively changes internet behaviour. We are also very proud of the fact that our programs have intervened in the lives of many, especially in our grade school programs where students who were contemplating suicide or self-harm as an option because they were in crisis or being targeted by cyberbullying or sexting went wrong issues. These students heard our empathetic message, reached out to us for help, and in each and every case (often working with their school) we were able to get them the help that they needed.
Our programs are designed not only from extensive experience but also academic support. Members of The White Hatter Team come from a variety of backgrounds in formal post-secondary education and bring a breadth of knowledge with how technology impacts the world from each individual and society.
