Cyber safety presentation planned at Claresholm high school on Nov. 18

A retired police detective will talk Wednesday, Nov. 18 about their responsibilities as “cyber citizens.”
Brian Trainor will give his presentation from 7-8 p.m. at Willow Creek Composite high school in Claresholm.
Trainer will talk about cyber bullying and other dangers that children can encounter when on-line and provide ideas to keep children and families safe.
Earlier in the day Trainor will speak to students at Willow Creek Composite.
Trainor spent 27 years with the Saskatoon Police Service before taking early retirement at age 49.
The five years Trainor spent investigating fraud prepared him for a second career educating people about fraud prevention and personal safety.
After attending an international bullying conference in Seattle, Trainor developed a powerful lecture on cyber-bullying that he has since presented to thousands of students.
Trainor also specializes in educating seniors on preventing financial abuse and employers on workplace harassment.
Trainor is a regular guest on radio and television, and presents at national conferences of lawyers, teachers, and bankers.
Trainor has given hundreds of national lectures on topics ranging from power of attorney abuse, teen suicide prevention, and Facebook safety for parents.
In 2000 Trainor wrote and drew a comic book on bullying, had 21,000 copies printed and donated to Grade 5 students across Saskatchewan.
A prolific writer, Trainor’s latest books are Stop Fraud and Bully 4u.
Bully 4 u is a novel Trainor co-wrote with another retired police officer, Mark Eisenzimmer.
The novel is about high school bullying and cyber-bullying, the popular teens versus the outcasts, and how bullying and cyber-bullying affect the bully, the victim, and those who witness the abuse.
