NHS and Iowa State Patrol teaming up to teach teenagers the dangers of ‘sexting’
With technology continuing to evolve at a rapid-fire pace, “Sexting,” or the act of sending explicit video, picture or text messages to another person, is also gaining steam — especially amongst teenagers.
According to DoSomething.org, a youth advocacy organization, 22 percent of teens between ages 14 and 17 have “sexted” and 33 percent of college students between 18 and 24 have also done so.
To help combat this growing trend, the Iowa State Patrol has been partnering with local schools to teach students the consequences and risks associated with sexting. Iowa State Trooper Doug Cutts has been conducting these talks with freshmen at Newton Senior High School for several years and on Wednesday, he spoke to two classes.
