Possible Risks in Social Networks: Awareness of Future Law-Enforcement Officers

The main purpose of the article was to investigate the awareness of students’, the future law-enforcement officers, who will be expected to provide security for other people, on risks for their own or personal safety in digital space. The paper presents both theoretical considerations and empiric data from the study (completed in 2016 and in 2017) aimed at investigating whether future law-enforcement students recognize the main risks of the safety in digital space. The study is important in the light that so much of contemporary social, personal and professional life is being carried out in digital spaces. If future law-enforcement officers are unable to recognize the risks on safety, they, as a consequence, will not be professional and ready enough to consult and to provide support to citizens on the issues that start in some cases dominating in the functioning of a contemporary person in a contemporary world.
