The work done to safely recover the juvenile female in the company of her adult boyfriend, [], could not have been done as efficiently without the collaboration of everyone involved. . . . [T]hank you for taking the time to contact me and for the work your organization does in protecting our vulnerable youth.
— Sheriff Bill Brown, Santa Barbara Co., CA (April 16, 2016)
Our initial contact and communication during the first two weeks of the incident. . . We feel that the resources assigned, approach to runaway cases, the risks associated with running away and the general perception of runaways in general needs to be challenged. My wife and I appreciate the over 300 hours of service that [SIA] donated to us. You stepped up to the plate when we were in desperate need of searching for our missing 16 year old daughter

It is partnerships, such as this, that play a significant role in law enforcement today, not only from a public safety standpoint, but also as an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of those who have been victimized.
— Sheriff Mike Williams, Consolidated City of Jacksonville, Duval Co., FL (April 28, 2016)
We greatly appreciate the hundreds of hours of service that you and your Saved In America donated to our family. . . . The valuable counsel and education we received from Saved In America will always stay with us. We can’t thank you enough. God bless you and your Team.

[L]aw enforcement departments were stifled . . . Your organization’s donation of approximately 400 hours of time is greatly appreciated and the family is forever in your debt.

I am writing as a mother of a 16 year old girl who was missing for almost 2 weeks at the beginning of this year. . . . We contacted our local police department and the FBI to help us find our daughter. I think their intent was good and in a very limited way they tried to help. Unfortunately, the law enforcement officials were not able to devote the time and resources needed to find [her]. We turned to Saved In America. . . . They took immediate action and I believe that is why we were able to find our daughter. Without a resource like Saved In America we would have been completely helpless and may not have had the outcome of finding [our daughter].

When you and your team at Saved In America came onto the scene more than 3 weeks into [our daughter’s] disappearance, we were starting to lose hope and didn’t know what to do. Our local police department had squandered opportunities and leads to find our daughter and the trail had grown cooler. . . . Saved In America was able to bring us multi-faceted resources beyond what local law enforcement could and would provide to us. You quickly assembled a team of legal, cyber, investigative, social media, and psychological support specialists for us. Within less than a week of making contact with you and SIA, we had found [our daughter]. Your people literally put their lives on the line in joint operation with the County Sheriffs to rescue her.
