FUTURE SAFETY OPERATIONS
S-1 Safety Dog Program™
It’s not often you can solve two problems at once, but we discovered in our predator interviews that certain kinds of dogs were more feared than alarm systems. And upon further investigation, it wasn’t necessarily a type of dog, so much as it’s behavior. We then identified ten dog breeds that could imitate the behavior predators feared, without being attack dogs, and began established our beta S-1 Safety Dog Program™. Odysseus, Achilles, and Dixie became our first S-1’s and Achilles is already operational with a single woman living in Nevada.
How is this solving two problems at once? We believe that rescues can be turned into highly effective S-1 Safety Dogs – so our goal is to create a replicable program that owners and trainers can use to turn rescues and pound dogs into powerful home safety partners.
$55k for the first ten experimental S-1 dogs, $250k to create a do-it-yourself website and national program
Serial Rapist Database™
Technology combined with a trusted organization could be the difference in the fight to stop serial rapists. These bad actors understand the limitations of law enforcement, travel across state lines to hunt or hide, and take advantage of the low reporting likelihood of their victims.
Most women do not trust the institutions that are supposed to address these bad actors including law enforcement, victim’s groups, universities, and often even their friends. So they do not report, and that is the first problem to solve.
We believe that a simple, non-official reporting website, that will preserve evidence for the Hero and provide practical information on the pros and cons of reporting to police, will be directly beneficial to those targeted. In addition, this system will provide us with leads and big data, both of which could lead to a sea change in reducing the amount of rape violence.
$250k needed for the beta, $2M for a small community or campus launch
Human Trafficker Hunters™ Pilot
This will be a pilot, something similar to Dog the Bounty Hunter™, except using CIA and Special Forces tactics for surveillance and exposure of bad actors. In other words, highly-skilled former operators exposing and confronting traffickers, and being ready, willing, and able to defend themselves if necessary.
There is a whole tactical area of activity that has not been explored between what law enforcement and regular citizens can do (most do nothing, and generally try to imagine it isn’t happening). Using former special operators as volunteers and private investigators, men and women who are not afraid to confront the very deadly sex traffickers, we believe that it will be possible to make one small city 99% free of human sex slavery. And if we can do one city…
$275k needed for the pilot and beta test
Safest Campus on the Planet™
What would you do if you knew that 6.25%(1) of the female students on your campus will be the target of a successful or completed rape this year?
Sexual violence is the most pervasive form
of violence on campus affecting at least
717,000 college students each year.(2)
The good news is, we can reduce those numbers by 50-90%. We are seeking a visionary partner to make this a reality on campus.

First Slave-Free City in the USA™
Eradicating slavery is the goal.
Contrary to popular belief, slavery did not end with the Civil War. Chances are there are women and children within a mile of your home, forced to serve as sexual slaves and living a hellish existence. We have a tactical plan that will stop all sex trafficking in one city by using new tactics, such as surveillance, confrontation, community crowding, transparency, and massive evidence collection to be delivered to local law enforcement at the operations conclusion. The team will include Strider Investigators, local PI’s, and former Special Operators. This ambitious project requires a major financial partner and a city Mayor or Chief of Police to make it happen. Our team is ready to go.
15 Million Hearts™
15 Million Hearts™ is our project to address the fact that 15 million women will be raped(1) in the next ten years. Each of them counts and each is worth fighting for.
But it's going to take a big step, not a lot of small ones to actually make a difference. Our plan is to teach 20,000 women our new Close Call Method™ of personal safety. This method is highly effective at identifying violence before it happens so one can take action to get safe and stay safe. The Close Call Method™ doesn't require physical training, so it can be taught online and to anyone.
Once we get 20,000 women safe, they will start influencing others and our society so we can reduce that incredible number of 15 million over the next ten years.
(1) Strider SFV™ Lab did a survey in 2010 and asked 140 women about their experiences with violence. The results suggested 1.85M women were being raped annually in the USA. However, much more substantial was the 2011 CDC Prevalence and Characteristics of Sexual Violence, Stalking, and Intimate Partner Violence Victimization - National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey, which interviewed 7,758 women and estimated 1.9M rapes in that year. In their most recent year, the CDC estimated 1.5M rapes of women. 1.5M is also an approximate average.
BREAK THE FRATERNITY SEXUAL ASSAULT MODEL
A investigative plan for Campus Safety-from-Violence™
It seems there is no end to sexual assaults at our nation's fraternities. Strider has determined that there are four levels of "defense" which keep serial predators in fraternities from being stopped:
1. "Brotherly Loyalty" - Brothers are not supposed to report on brothers, so many fraternity members turn a blind eye to sexual assaults committed by soon-to-be serial predators in their houses.
2. Power of the fraternity - Any woman who wants to report a rape or sexual assault, is essentially going up against a group of guys with enormous social power. It's intimidating and demoralizing, especially when members of that group stigmatize you. This reduces the overall number of reports and often leads to victims leaving campus.
3. Conflicted Police - Campus Police Chiefs are often overseen by an administrator who limits what they can do. For example, why is drinking so prevalent on campuses? Because no one is enforcing the drinking laws. The same is often applied to sexual assaults; the cases aren't treated seriously.
4. University administrators and fraternity alumni who protect the fraternities at all costs. In one case, the son of the school's president was implicated in the murder of a pledge. University police called it a suicide. The family's investigators called it a murder. Read more here. Law enforcement is not effectual on our nation's campuses. There are thousands of examples.
Our plan is to investigate fraternities and university administrators on three different campuses in order to see and reveal what is really going on. We want to estimate violence and sexual violence, identify ignored cases and crime reports, and bring transparency. We hope that such an investigation will bring parents, good administrators, good cops, and even fraternity alumni together to figure out how to solve the over 711,000 rapes occurring on campuses each year, many of them at fraternity houses.
