Child Sexual Abuse: An Issue of EPIC PROPORTIONS.

Together, we can proactively work to prevent child sexual abuse by equipping organization workers to recognize and report the

offender’s ‘grooming process’ before abuse occurs.

Child Sexual Abuse: An Issue of EPIC PROPORTIONS

Check in and matching tag systems are ineffective at protecting children from sexual abuse, because 90% of victims are abused by someone they know and trust

Criminal Background Checks are Not a Silver Bullet

Criminal background checks ALONE are not a silver bullet because less than 10% of abusers will encounter the criminal justice system, ever.

Children Don't Report

2 out of 3 children don’t tell about abuse until adulthood, if ever. 

Offenders Groom the Gatekeepers

To gain access to children, abusers groom the gatekeepers  – trusted adults in a ministry program – by appearing helpful, trustworthy, and responsible. 

The Problem is Pervasive

1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be sexually abused before reaching 18 years of age. 

False Allegations are Rare

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) and other academic studies indicate false allegations are less than 3%.

Abuse Prevention Systems provides the most effective preventative training on the market.

Founded by legal experts after decades of litigating child sexual abuse cases and providing crisis management to organization, Abuse Prevention Systems offers an unmatched level of experience and expertise.
