RadKIDS is a nationally recognized, children's safety education and empowerment program primarily designed for children between the ages of 4 and 12.  Children learn awareness and avoidance techniques to prevent or escape situations that may involve bullying, school violence or abduction attempts.

Help Delete Online Predators



Every day, children are being tricked and sexually solicited online.





A true story?
Suzie Starks, a 12-year-old, was fairly popular. Suzie spent a lot of time online. She felt more comfortable there. One day she met a new friend online. They liked the same music. They worried about the same subjects in school. They promised to keep each other’s secrets.
They decided to meet at the mall. Suzie showed up early. So did her new friend.
Only her friend wasn’t in middle school. Wasn’t nice. Wasn't a girl...... and wasn’t 14.




You may not know what your kids are really doing online or who they are actually writing to. Most of the time, they don't realize who they really are writing to either.


So get involved. To protect your kid’s online life or report an incident, call 1-800-THE LOST or visit http://www.cybertipline.com/.


Learn how to talk to your kids about better protecting their online lives. Visit "HDOP": help delete online predators.

Preventing Drive-up Abductions

http://www.tucsonaz.gov/police/child-abduction-prevention
Prevent potential drive-up abductions, prepare and protect your child/ren by knowing where sex offenders are in your neighborhood! Consider signing them up for one of our radkids 40 minute classes. Also, to see the website with 'sex offenders' locations click here.

To watch a  news report on a recent attempt, please click here.

In 2003 the Supreme Court ruled that information about registered sex offenders may be posted on the Internet. The "The Family Watch Dog" website allows you: to see how close sex offenders are to your family residence, review their convictions and view their pictures. Just type in a home or work address and view a map of your local area.

Through this website you may also be notified by email or text message when an offender moves into your neighborhood. Get the information and increase your awareness to protect your family!
