The Bergen County Prosecutor's Office will premiere two Internet safety films, which highlight the dangers of cyber-bullying and online stalking, on Friday, April 3.

The video series, called "Point of No Return", is a project initiated and funded by the Prosecutor's Office and produced by the Emmy-nominated production company Chase Wilson.

The first two films in the series will be screened at two venues: "Sticks and Stones," a film highlighting the dangers of cyber-bullying, and "The Web," which focuses on the dangers of on-line sexual predation and stalking. The first premiere event will be at 9:00 a.m. at the Bergen County Police Academy in Mahwah. This screening will be tailored to law enforcement officials, the media, and other dignitaries. Premiere Two will be that evening at 8:00 p.m. at Pascack Hills High School Auditorium in Montvale. This screening is primarily for cast and crew, members of the local community, and the media, and is by ticket only. There is no cost to attend, but space is limited.

Both films will be distributed to schools, law enforcement agencies, and other organizations throughout the area. Each film is accompanied by a comprehensive Teacher’s Guide that includes step-by-step instructional materials and classroom activities.
