MAHWAH - The internet can be a dangerous place for children, so Mahwah Police Chief James Batelli says parents should play a role in making it safer for their kids.

Batelli said it's concerning when police see children as young as 11 or 12 with their own Facebook pages, especially without the appropriate parental supervision.

To combat online dangers, Batelli is urging parents to install monitoring software on their computers, so they can better keep track how kids spend their time on the computer.
