OPP in Central Region are warning young people to watch what they post online.

Over the past few weeks, provincial police in several detachments in our area have been involved in six criminal investigations regarding posts on social media.

Police say inappropriate comments and pictures were posted in relation to a school.

They say given the nature of the threats, they treat them very seriously and use a lot of resources to conduct investigations into the threats.

Criminal charges have been laid in five of the six incidents.

Parents are urged to remind their children about being respectful when posting comments or images on any social media platform.
