Electronic Detection K9's Seek Hidden Devices & Comforting To The Victims Of Abuse





Our Community and Law Enforcement is constantly facing the horrible challenges of Child Sexual Abuse, Physical Abuse, Sex Trafficking, Domestic Abuse, Substance Abuse and More. We are offering a simple solution that has been shown to help make a difference. Defenders For Children is requesting your assistance to help us in our efforts to provide an Electronic Device K9 to the Greenville County Sheriff's Office Children's Crime Unit. This K9 will assist in searches connected to child abuse and neglect reports. The rescue dog would be professionally trained to locate very important yet often overlooked evidence including micro SD Cards, USBs, and other electronic devices that may contain sensitive photos, financial information, contacts, etc. One such device could hold thousands of images or videos of children that need help and can be used as evidence in court to prosecute offenders.

Below are some of the tiny devices the Electronic Detection K9 can find. These tiny devices can hidden places where the law enforcement can easily miss during a search. They have been found in piles of garbage, attics, walls and more. Just one device hold more then 288,000 images of children being abused. It is important to find everything we can to help save the children and bring more evidence to prosecute the criminals.


However, there are only 20 ED dogs available to police forces in the US. Their services have yielded proven results in past child abuse cases like the bust of Subway spokesperson, Jared Fogle, so we are confident that adding a similarly trained animal to the Greenville County Sheriff's Office will allow our local officers to catch more predators, rescue more children, and deter potential abusers..

  • 1 in 10 children will be sexually abused before age 18. 20% under the age of 8 years old
  • Child sexual abuse makes children more vulnerable to sexual exploitation.
  • More than 90% of children who are commercially sexually exploited have been sexually abused in the past.
  • Studies consistently report that 50% - 90% of child sex trafficking victims has been involved in the child welfare system.
  • Technology has made it easier to harm children. The spread of child sexual abuse material exploded with the rise of the internet, while sex trafficking increased with exposure to a greater market online.
  • 70% of child sex offenders have between one and 9 victims, while 20% have 10 to 40 victims.
  • Annual estimate; 800 children in Greenville County, under the age of 18 receive service from a local advocacy center for sexual abuse.

Here's what we need from you!

To accomplish this goal along with other child abuse initiatives we need to raise $30,000 will help in the purchase and handling of the first of four Electronic Device K9, brought into the Upstate and surrounding areas. We hope that you will consider being part of changing the lives of many children now and in the future by making a financial contribution in this mission. See the next page for benefits of your generous donation. Together we will make a difference.
