Washington State Patrol detectives experienced in investigations of computer crimes against children plan to answer questions Wednesday about online safety.

Twitter users can use the hashtag #askWSP to ask the detectives questions during the 90-minute Q&A session. The only off-limits topic is anything related to active cases. The event runs from 2:30-4 p.m.

Sgt. Carlos Rodriguez is the commander of Washington’s Missing and Exploited Children’s Task Force and recently involved in the much-publicized arrests of Internet predators in Elma and Spanaway.

Sgt. Jesse Regalado commands the agency’s High-Tech Crimes Unit and is a recognized expert at recovering information off hard drives of missing persons and suspects.

Investigators encourage parents, school and community leaders and mentors of children to participate in the discussion.
