    Three children walking to school were approached by a stranger who offered them video games if one of them would come with him to help him take his dog to the vet. The children saw a small dog in the car but told him "No." They had learned in the CAP workshop to observe all they could about strangers who speak to them and so they memorized his license plate number and reported it to their principal. A trace through the local law enforcement agency revealed he lived forty miles away and had criminal record for child molestation.

    These stories come from the many CAP projects across America and around the world. In addition to these, there are thousands of other stories which are never shared publicly or which never go beyond a parent, a friend or a trusted teacher. Although our impact on a community can often be measured statistically, these stories are always the most touching, most memorable and most convincing reasons given by legislators, community leaders, educators and parents as they request CAP in their communities. For these children and thousands like them, CAP has made a significant difference in their lives.
