KEEPING KIDS SAFE
FROM PREDATORS

 EACH YEAR, ALMOST HALF A MILLION AMERICAN KIDS
ARE REPORTED MISSING.
MANY ARE VULNERABLE TO EXPLOITATION.

OVER THE LAST THREE YEARS, WE HAVE HELPED RESCUE
45 OF THEM FROM PREDATORS.

LAW ENFORCEMENT

NEEDS OUR HELP TO FIND MISSING CHILDREN

Each year, half a million American children are reported missing. Many are from foster care and classified as “runaways,” not thought to be missing until it’s too late. Many are exploited into drugs and commercial sex work. Any child with a cell phone or social media account is at risk–even in “safe” communities. Unlike a burglary or a kidnapping where police respond immediately, crimes against runaways require a proactive investigation. In most cases, the victims are too frightened to testify against the criminal.  According to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, 75% of its missing children cases are related to online sex advertisements.

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 sex trafficking. 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:

LOCATE MISSING KIDS

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

RESCUE 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 rescued, 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.
