Who equips children to be safe from abductors?

That’s a good question. And Strategos International has an answer – and a solution. Strategos personnel have decades of experience in law enforcement, private security and military security. We’ve provided education for thousands of schools, churches and businesses.

Our S.A.F.E. for Kids child training is for youth ages 5-14, with a maximum class size of 20. It’s relevant for schools, churches, sports leagues, scouting and numerous other child- and youth-oriented associations.

We use the field-tested principles of “Scan, Avoid, Fight, Escape” (S.A.F.E.), to teach children:

  • Situational awareness
  • How to identify potential attackers and child predators
  • How to avoid contact with perpetrators
  • Ways to break free from abductors

Part 1: Awareness Children and adults perceive danger differently. Strategos teaches kids to become aware of their surroundings and to understand the potential for danger, but not to live in fear.

Part 2: Personal protection This session teaches kids simple techniques that even our youngest students can master. Children can’t win a prolonged conflict with an adult, so our goal is to teach them to fight just enough to escape an abductor.

Part 3: Scenarios We put the training into practice with scenario-based testing that builds self-confidence and readiness.

ID kits for each student Each student receives a “ChildPrint ID Kit®” along with instructions for each parent or guardian. With the kit, parents can easily create a confidential and comprehensive record of their child’s personal and medical information for use in an emergency. It gives police a complete and accurate description, saving precious time and hastening the search for a missing child. In addition, ChildPrint® includes two pages of important safety tips to help kids avoid dangerous situations.

S.A.F.E. for Kids instructors

S.A.F.E. for Kids instructors have a mission to protect children and the background to bring practical, effective training. In addition, all instructors undergo a nationwide background check prior to being accepted. Any potential instructors with felonies or other hazardous offenses on are not eligible to participate.
