NEC Corp. has started a new e-mail service to help city and prefectural boards of education alert elementary and junior high schools and students’ parents about suspected prowlers near schools.

NEC’s BIGLOBE Net connection service department will send out information on people acting in a suspicious manner after boards of education gauge the accuracy of tips, NEC said.

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
