Online enticement involves an individual communicating with someone believed to be a child via the internet with the intent to commit a sexual offense or abduction. How are children vulnerable to this type of crime? This webinar will explore risk factors for youth and the vulnerabilities that make them targets for manipulation by online predators and the NCMEC resources designed to protect children and educate the community.
