About

We're Operation: Safe Escape, an initiative of the nonprofit group, the Operations Security Professional's Association. We exist to provide safety and security information and resources to domestic violence shelters, safe houses, and advocacy groups, as well individuals impacted by domestic violence. Everything we do is free. We don't charge for anything we create. We don't charge them to send things to them. We don't want anything except to help the people leave their situation.

We need dedicated, creative, and resourceful committee members who can help get this program off the ground. If you have skills with management, planning, fundraising, writing, program development- or really anything else- we need your help!

About Operation: Safe Escape

By some reports, 85% of domestic violence homicides occur after the victim has decided to leave their abuser. This is a dangerous time, and fortunately many resources exist to keep them safe.

What's missing, unfortunately, is the security layer. That is, how to properly apply Operations Security (OPSEC) to hide the victim's intent to leave. That would keep a lot of people safe and help reduce that number.

Operation: Safe Escape teaches shelters and victims how to identify the behaviors and actions that would tip off the abuser to the fact that they're trying to leave and help reduce the risk until they're safely away.

About OSPA

The Operations Security Professional's Association (OSPA) is a 501c3 non-profit organization that provides security awareness and training to a diverse audience that includes schools, government / military, domestic violence centers, private sector entities and more.

About the OSPA logo

The OSPA logo is a purple dragon protectively clutching the earth. The purple dragon has a special significance in the OPSEC community, as it was the mascot of the original team that developed the process. In mythology, the dragon is known for protecting treasure; it's often depicted guarding gold or other riches. With OPSEC, the dragon is protecting those things that are important to us. The OSPA logo depicts the "purple dragon" of OPSEC protecting the world.
