The US Conference of Catholic Bishops hired the head of the FBI’s child abuse division to develop its Safe Environment program.
Safe Environment is now the model for other organizations in the US. I’m telling you that the program works and school districts, corporations and all kinds of organizations are now using the Catholic Church’s model. The Catholic Church’s Safe Environment program is the standard in the USA.
Google Safe Enviroment program and see for yourself.
I had to sit through six hours of training - how to recognize abuse, what my legal and moral obligations are to report suspected abuse, how to report, whom to call, etc. I had to submit to a background check and am not allowed to be in a room or car alone with a child - there has to be two adults present at all times or I get reported. These are just examples. Every employee or volunteer who comes into contact with children has to go through this including priests, deacons PSR teachers and the Archbishop himself.
