Paul Litherland
Owner: Surf Online Safe

Paul Litherland was a Western Australian Police Officer for 20 years, working the last 5 years of his career within the Technology Crime Investigation Unit. Paul came to realise the great risk our kids were being exposed to and became frustrated at the lack of power he had to act on the issues being faced by our kids, their parents and educators. Paul felt education was the better approach and as such, he left the WA Police in 2014 and Surf Online Safe was born. Since then he has gone from talking to only a few schools in his local area, to presenting to over 400 schools and organisations across Australia. Paul is now considered one of Australia’s leading key note speakers on the subjects of internet awareness and online crime relating to children.

Paul has a very strong reputation in WA and has been presenting at All Saints’ College for 5 years. A Surf Online Safe presentation offers some real life examples and practical techniques that will help parents better understand the networks our kids are using and what they are being exposed to. Paul offers some great tips and hints that will help guide our kids through the online world, whilst still giving them the tools to interact with their peers safely and appropriately. Anyone who has seen one of Pauls presentations has been amazed at his subject matter knowledge and presentation style.
