About Me...

I'm an ordinary man who has made his own mistakes in the past and only wants to work toward helping those who otherwise can't help themselves. As a former police officer, I use my knowledge of surveillance techniques to assist people who need someone of my skill sets.

My sole weakness...

... I have personally witnessed the pain and psychological damage caused by child predation. Having witnessed this has softened me and focused my devotion on preventing these attacks before they can happen.

Polly Klaas Foundation Poll

Most of the readers of my blog and many of my clients know how passionate I am about helping children avoid becoming a victim to child predation. Many parents don't realize how vulnerable their children are, but maybe some of the information in the Polly Klaas poll from 2005 will help open some eyes.

Here are some numbers (remember this is from 2005 and the numbers are sure to have skyrocketed by now):

  • 87 % of 12-17 year olds use the internet
  • more than half of those create web pages and blogs with personal information
  • 42% post information for others to contact them
  • 33% of girls say they've been asked about sexual topics
  • more than half have been asked personal information, 10% at least once a day
  • 27% have talked about sex online with strangers
  • 8-12 year olds report risky behavior too, but in smaller numbers
  • A alarming 12% learned they were talking to an adult pretending to be younger

Internet use has steadily risen since 2005 for youth and adults. Electronic gadgets come more and more internet ready while social networking sites increase in popularity.
