What's Join the Dots?

 
Cyberspace is YOUR SPACE but we know that there are ‘creepers’ and ‘trolls’ out there that target young people like you online.
 
Join the Dots is a private reporting tool that lets you take charge and help protect your space.  SEE PRESS RELEASE HERE.
 

Why use it?

 
By being the eyes and ears and telling us, you can help protect others from the ‘creepers’ who troll through your space. 
 
We know you may not want to talk to the police, so we created Join the Dots to help you share the info that they need to help keep an eye on your space and keep you and young people around you safe.
 
You might think what happened was no big deal, that police can’t do anything or you might not want to get involved with the police, but sometimes the info you have is just one piece of a bigger picture and can help to protect other younger kids.
 
That’s why we came up with the idea for Join the Dots – to give you a safe space to share the info you have with those who can do something about it. 
 
What you can do to help?
 
By taking part in Join the Dots you are able to play an important role in protecting other young people online. You will be sending the info to us here at Bravehearts and we will share this with the police. You can stay anonymous if you want to, the idea behind Join the Dots is to give you a safe space to share the info you have.

Please fill out as much info as you can. Remember that you can still complete the form even if you do not have all of the info – it's all about ‘joining the dots’:
 
Join the Dots has been created in collaboration with Task Force Argos, Queensland Police
