Using Technology to Protect Utah Children and Families

I spent last week in Seattle, Washington at the summer meeting of the Conference of Western Attorneys General. I was honored that the new interactive website of the Office of Utah Attorney General won the "Waggie" award for the Best Overall Website. I have talented people in my office, including Paul Murphy, Scott Troxel and Chris Earl to thank.

In the past four years, I have worked very hard to use technology to better protect the people of Utah. During the CWAG conference, I shared a PowerPoint presentation on websites we have been involved in developing to provide information and assistance in further protecting our citizens. I invite you to visit the following websites for more information on how you might better protect yourselves and your families; or drop by my official Utah Attorney General website for information on these or a host of other issues. www.attorneygeneral.utah.gov
