Our Kids Count

“Our children are among the most vulnerable members of our community. We are committed to ensuring they are safe and that those who harm them are brought to justice.”

Did you know that just in Autauga, Elmore, and Chilton counties there are over 1000 registered sex offenders. As technology has become more accessible to our children, crimes against our children have increased by more than 100-fold.

Did you know that in the US, 2300 children are reported missing per day. 

Did you know that Child Pornography charges can arise whenever a person sends or receives explicit images of a person under the age of 17. But it isn’t just adults who send or receive such images who can be charged with these crimes. Teens who send pictures of themselves to adults or other teens can face child pornography charges.


Cell phones, tablets and computers connected to the internet can be a very powerful tool for learning and communicating; however, they can be used by dangerous people that intend on harming our children. It is critical that parents have the tools to protect their children. 

Parental CONTROL Apps 

There are many apps that can help parents monitor their children’s phones, tablets and computers. With these tools, parents can become the gatekeepers of their child’s digital well-being.

Bark Logo

Bark monitors texts, email, YouTube, and 30+ apps and social media platforms for signs of issues like cyberbullying, sexual content, online predators, depression, suicidal ideation, threats of violence, and more.

With content monitoring, you can get email and text alerts when Bark detects potential issues so you can talk to your child and make sure everything is OK.

Qustodio logo

Qustodio allows parents to log into the real-time dashboard from any device at any time to check your child’s digital activity and adjust your settings. Easily view their activity timeline, browsing history, YouTube views, screen time and more. Spot your child on the map to know where they are and have been. Save most visited places like school and home and get peace of mind by receiving notifications when they arrive or leave those locations. Detect suspicious contacts by seeing who your child exchanges calls and messages with. Read the texts they send and receive, plus set a list of blocked phone numbers.

MSPY logo

mSpy is a leading Parental Control solution that allows parents to see all activities of their kids on Mac, PC, iPhone, Android phone, or tablet. With this app parents can keep an eye on what their kids do online and protect them from cyberbullying, online predators, adult content, suicidal thoughts, drug use and other dangers that might await them.

For information on how to install these apps, feel free to call Chris Barrineau, from my office, at (205) 393-0543.
