NEW SOFTWARE HELPS POLICE CATCH AN ALLEGED PREDATOR, AND “DR PHIL” CAMERAS ARE THERE
“Technology is changing at the speed of light...we are committed to keeping parents ahead of the curve with the latest trends.” – Dr. Phil
(Los Angeles, CA – February 2, 2009) – A man who had been under surveillance by the Jefferson County, Colorado police department for soliciting a minor for sex, was arrested last week and the entire investigation was captured by DR. PHIL show cameras. This arrest was the result of a new technology called RADAR by My Mobile Watchdog, which is being used by law enforcement agencies as well as parents throughout the country and will be featured on Tuesday’s DR. PHIL (check local listings).
With this new software, a parent is notified when an unapproved number is attempting to contact their child’s cell phone. The parents can then access, through a web site, what is being communicated to their child whether it is a text or photo.
Addressing parents, Dr. Phil said, “You want to know who’s talking to your child. I don’t think it’s an infringement of a child’s privacy, because it’s your job as a parent to know.”
Also on the program is the story of 16-year-old Zoe who sees nothing wrong with exchanging risqué photos with men online until she meets a young teen who was sexually assaulted by an adult male she met online.
