Initiatives for Raising Crime Prevention Awareness

Our mission is to further expand “safety and peace of mind” throughout society and to contribute to the growth of local communities. We utilize our expertise as professionals in safety and peace of mind to hold crime-prevention workshops and seminars that inform people to protect themselves from a variety of dangers. Other activities by SECOM include using our website and books to raise awareness towards crime among children, women, and the elderly.

Conveying “safety and peace of mind” to children

The “SECOM Safety Committee for Parents of Children” was founded in 2005 due mainly to the efforts of SECOM employees who have children. From the perspective of parents and safety professionals, the Committee holds crime-prevention workshops, operates a website, publishes books, and conducts various other activities aimed at raising awareness on how children can avoid danger and protect themselves.

SECOM Child Safety Workshop

Since July 2006, workshops have held activities for raising safety awareness among children by using unique educational materials created by SECOM.

These safety workshops are held in response to requests by guardians (parents), PTAs, schools, etc. Workshop venues include schools (ranging from kindergartens to high schools) and other event halls. The workshops are attended by children, guardians, school officials, and other related parties. SECOM employees serve as instructors and explain important points on how children can avoid crime.
