And that’s a topic to which Greg Price, director of the Alabama Computer Forensics Institute at Troy University, can speak. Price, who has worked with Internet safety for nearly two decades and spoken about it in Covington County on several occasions, said sites like this one always disappoint him.
“For the community and parents, I suggest they follow a deliberate, structured approach to address the issues that poor use of technology can create,” Price said. “On our website, whoswatchingalabama.org, we provide a number of online resources.”
Among those resources is a framework called ADMIT, which offers simple steps that foster a safe computing environment for everyone, especially children.
“We designed the ADMIT framework as a tool to assist parents, guardians, and others with these challenging events,” he said.

Pike County residents were able to learn about the epidemic of bullying this Thursday night in Troy when the university held a town hall meeting followed by a vigil to raise bullying awareness.
The meeting took the form of a panel discussion and question-and-answer section in which Pike County residents were able to ask specific questions about bullying.
The panel was composed of Florence Mitchell, Greg Crosby, Sharon Sullivan, Brenda Lampley, Karena Valkyrie and Greg Price.
Price gave a presentation on cyber-bullying before the panel discussion. Price serves as the head of the Alabama Computer Forensics Institute, a group that aids law enforcement officials in technology related criminal cases. “We work an enormous volume of cases involving cyber-bullying and child predators,” Price said. “It is basically anywhere where technology and bad things intersect.”
