A former undercover internet detective and police officer of twenty-two years, Brett is passionate about informing parents of the online risks to their children. Brett came face to face with computer predators and learnt their ploys while pretending to be a young person online. In these cyber playgrounds of the world’s teenagers and children, he found predators preying on the vulnerable. Invariably, their targets were children and young people without adult supervision.
‘I had a unique opportunity to see these offenders through the eyes of a child and combat them with the mind of an adult,’ Brett, a father of four, says.
Brett’s involvement led to the arrest of scores of alleged offenders over a five-year period. He also took part in early collaborative ties between Australian and United States (US) law enforcement agencies battling this online epidemic.
Brett subsequently founded training company INESS (Internet Education and Safety Services), which has now evolved into a speaking, face to face, and online training and resource business, Internet Safe Education.
