ATLANTA -- For more than three years, a nonprofit group has been proactively promoting anti-bulling and anti-abduction training and recovery in the state.

Keep Georgia Safe provides personal safety education and crime prevention training.

Executive Director Mary Ellen Fulkus said kids must be taught how to recognize, avoid, resist and escape violence, abduction and harm.

"I can tell you kids are empowered by learning this system, because they practice having a plan on what to do if someone approaches them," Fulkus said.
