Breck's Last Game - How to stay safe online

Today, sees us launch a series of educational workshops countywide to Essex students and their teachers about how to stay safe online, coinciding with the release of Breck's Last Game - a film based on the real-life murder of 14 year-old Breck Bednar in Grays in 2014. 780 pupils from 45 schools will take part in sessions today aimed at educating them on how to stay safe online. The project is being delivered by Essex Youth Service and has been commissioned by Essex Police and the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner for Essex. The film highlights the risks of grooming to young people and asks the question ‘Do you know who your online friends really are?’ Watch the trailer and read more

The whole film will be available from 3rd April.

Workshops are taking place in Brentwood, Colchester, Chelmsford, Canvey and Harlow. To get your school involved, contact us at: Joanne.adams2@essex.gov.uk
