Child Safety Network Appoints New President

SAN DIEGO, March 8, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Child Safety Network (CSN) appoints Azim Khamisa as President. Azim Khamisa, who worked with CSN over 20 years ago, returns to CSN after a life changing event that has made Azim the most qualified and motivated leader for CSN's continuing mission to make America a safer place for children to live.

Azim Khamisa was born in Kenya and educated in England and had a successful career as an international investment banker and finance expert. For several years leading up to a personal tragedy that claimed the life of his only son – Tariq Khamisa, Azim consulted with CSN as its Chief Financial Officer.

After working with CSN for several years, Azim's life changed when on Jan 21 st, 1995 a 14-year-old gang member murdered Azim's son - Tariq Khamisa. Tariq was earning extra money delivering pizza at night to help put himself through school at San Diego State University when an 18-year-old gang leader gave the order for the 14-year-old gang member to murder Tariq because he refused to give up his money from delivering pizza.

"CSN's staff and Ward Leber, the founder of CSN were key to the investigation and capture of my son's killer ( Tony Hicks). At the time, the police could find no witnesses. Even if there were any, they would not want to talk to police in fear of retribution from the gang. Ward immediately hit the airwaves and invited anyone with information to contact CSN. From there, the CSN staff gained the trust of a young girl that overheard the killer bragging about the murder and interacted with law enforcement and the District Attorney office to affect a successful arrest and conviction. Without CSN's intervention my son's murder might have remained unsolved," said Azim.

This tragedy led Azim to create the Tariq Khamisa Foundation which is the single most effective organization in the prevention of youth violence. They literally take the nation's most "at-risk" youth and turn their lives around, making them peaceful, successful, productive citizens. Without the programs that Azim helped to create, there is an 80%-90% chance that a youth offender will return to a life of crime when placed in the juvenile justice system.
