KEEPING KIDS SAFE
FROM PREDATORS

 

EVERY YEAR ALMOST HALF A MILLION AMERICAN CHILDREN ARE REPORTED MISSING. MOST ARE ENDANGERED RUNAWAYS AND  VULNERABLE TO EXPLOITATION. 

OVER THE LAST FOUR YEARS,  OUR PRIVATE INVESTIGATORS HAVE HELPED LAW ENFORCEMENT IDENTIFY AND FIND OVER 100 VICTIMS OF CHILD SEX TRAFFICKING IN THE BAY AREA AND NEVADA. MANY WERE BEING EXPLOITED WHILE STILL LIVING AT HOME.

 

“THERE CAN BE NO KEENER REVELATION
OF A SOCIETY’S SOUL THAN THE WAY
IT TREATS ITS CHILDREN”

A PUBLIC-PRIVATE COLLABORATION

BETWEEN LAW ENFORCEMENT AND THE COMMUNITY TO RESCUE KIDS AND TARGET CRIMINALS

Special Operations is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization whose mission is to keep children safe from being commercially sexually exploited. Our network allows us to proactively search for, rescue and rehabilitate vulnerable victims. We work closely with trafficking organizations, private investigators, law enforcement, aftercare organizations and the National Center of Missing and Exploited Children to help:

IDENTIFY VULNERABLE AND MISSING KIDS

Our organization was born from an unmet
need in our community — the need for boots-on-
the-ground forces to identify kids vulnerable to being exploited. Our investigators have the experience and expertise to find both the victims and the perpetrators.

RECOVERY OUT OF A BAD SITUATION

Our team of private investigators gathers evidence to help law enforcement  quickly rescue the child out of a dangerous situation.

SUPPORT SURVIVORS WITH HOUSING, LEGAL AND FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE

Once a child is recovered, we work within our network
to provide direct assistance to the survivors so they can begin their healing journey. When survivors feel safe and empowered to testify, traffickers go to prison. The result is a safer community for us all.

“We will work as hard as we can, for as long as we can, to help find as many missing and vulnerable children as we can.”

LAW ENFORCEMENT

NEEDS A COMMUNITY RESPONSE TO HELP FIND MISSING CHILDREN, AND IDENTIFY THOSE VULNERABLE TO EXPLOITATION

In Africa, members of the Maasai tribe do not ask “How are you?” when they greet each other. Instead, they say “Casserian engeri?” which translates to “How are the children?” They believe that monitoring the well-being of their children is the best way to determine the future health and prosperity of their whole society.  At Special Operations, our priority is to protect children and to work towards a society that prioritizes the safety and well-being of its most precious citizens.
