Brett Lee Former Undercover Cyber Detective – Predators Online & Your Kids

Brett Lee Undercover Cyber Detective

My guest this week on Digital Families is Former detective Brett Lee who worked as a Queensland Police Officer for 22 years, 16 of which as a detective in the field of Child Exploitation. Brett has been personally involved with the interview, location, arrest and prosecution of hundreds of online criminals and predators. 

In his investigative role, Brett spent years and thousands of hours using the internet under the guise of fictitious children and adults, both male and female. This unprecedented view of the online world enables Brett to view the cyber world through the eyes of a child yet stand back and process this experience with the mind of an adult.

Brett now runs Internet Safe Education a business established in 2008. Internet Safe Education delivers training, speaking and consultancy worldwide in the field of digital compliance including internet safety and cyberbullying. Brett Lee is the author of “Screen Resolution” a book where Brett describes his experiences in real and powerful terms, profiling predator behaviours and exposing their sinister intentions.

In this podcast Brett informs parents about how to protect their children from online predators and pedophiles. He discusses the games and social media platforms these people use to lure children into dangerous situations.

TikTok, Instagram, Roblox, and Minecraft are some of the most popular platforms for teens and children, and therefor are most used by predators to groom children. The Omegle platform is also one of the most explicit and dangerous sites for any teen or child to use, not safe for adults either. We talk about Omegle in this podcast, but urge parents NOT to ask children specifically about Omegle, in case the child then goes searching for it.

Chances are, if your child spends any amount of time in online games, or social media they may have already come across a predator. Maybe they blocked them? or maybe they became your child’s best online friend.

What are the 5 things that a predator needs to have success in grooming a child? Brett Lee outlines how to help your child navigate this tricky space.

If parents have any concerns about a person connecting with their child online, call the police and report to www.eSafety.gov.au
