KEEPING KIDS SAFE
EVERY YEAR ALMOST HALF A MILLION AMERICAN CHILDREN ARE REPORTED MISSING. MOST ARE ENDANGERED RUNAWAYS AND VULNERABLE TO EXPLOITATION.
OVER THE LAST THREE YEARS, OUR PRIVATE INVESTIGATORS HAVE HELPED LAW ENFORCEMENT FIND AND HELP OVER 80 VICTIMS OF CHILD SEX TRAFFICKING. MANY WERE BEING EXPLOITED WHILE STILL LIVING AT HOME.
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.
“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:
“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.”
