The Bexar County District Attorney's Office announced a new tool for parents when it comes to monitoring what their children do on the Internet.

"Our children are just being pulled into it more and more; with Twitter, with Facebook, all of that, and I think it has to be watched," said District Attorney Susan Reed.

Reed's office will be offering the software, called "Computer Cop," free of charge. It allows parents to follow what their children are looking at, whether it's images, documents or websites. 

Parents can permanently delete images that have been downloaded and the program will also send parents copies of suspicious chat, text or email. 

Free copies of the software are available at San Antonio Public Library locations and SAPD stations for monitoring those 18 and younger.
