Surveys & Questionnaires

Personal Safety Surveys & Questionnaires

SEPS (Situation Effective Protection System), is a research based program, that steers away from anecdotal evidence of the ways that criminals and predatory individuals operate, in favor of more comprehensive and validated data. This enables us to present strategies and solutions, that are grounded, rather simply being good ideas.

We are also interested in people’s perceptions of violence, and how violent incidents occur, as this allows us to tailor and direct our training, by understanding the views and opinions of our target audiences. If you would like to help us by adding your voice to this research, there are several questionnaires that you can take. These are anonymous, and answers are provided at the end, so there is also an added educational benefit, to taking them.
