       Larry Scheideman said the IBM PC was just sitting in a corner doing
nothing when he suggested that the Lakewood, CO, Department of Public 
Safety sponsor a bulletin board.
        "The idea was to try to start a dialog with the youngsters," said 
Scheideman, a 13-year police veteran. "There are a lot of them out there using 
their Apples and Commodores to do computer break-ins and saying they don't know 
what the laws are." 
        Scheideman said he has made a lot of contacts with other security 
professionals through the BBS, but a lot of the young hackers have been 
reluctant to chat.
        "There are two or three hackers and phreakers that come on the board
and answer questions. One calls himself Phos-4-Glow and it's scary how much he
knows," Scheideman said.
        In addition to the open message sections, the board has a section 
devoted to law enforcement interests. Scheideman said the board's library 
includes several dBase programs for investigation and analysis. One program 
will take a name and generate a list of names with a similar sound. 
        The board, which uses RBBS software, is open after 5 pm weekdays and
all day Saturdays and Sundays at 303-987-7388. The department's address is 445
S. Allison Parkway, Lakewood, CO 80226.
