Guardian Group is a veteran owned and operated 501c3 nonprofit organization, whose mission is to prevent and disrupt the sex trafficking of women and children while enabling partners to identify victims and predators in the United States.
Our approach can best be described as holistic, as in our Offense and our Defense rely on each other to help bring victims justice. Through our offensive component, we change the way resource-constrained law enforcement agencies can respond to trafficking situations. Our defensive strategy utilizes the power of communities, trained to recognize and respond to potential trafficking. Empowering people to view their role in the solution to stopping sex trafficking will not only aid in preventing future victims, but also impact future generations.
Our Offense team is comprised of former elite military and intelligence community professionals, that provide free services to law enforcement, enabling them to proactively counter the crime of sex trafficking in the US. Among this team, is the ever-growing cadre of skilled Open-Source Intelligence (OSINT) volunteers that have successfully completed the free PURSUIT® – Volunteer Training & Assessment course and are now active contributing team members through Guardian Group’s Project 1591® platform.
Project 1591® is the first ever 24/7 crowdsourcing process & platform that enables volunteers to become force multipliers to Guardian Group’s mission of illuminating child victims of sex trafficking in the United States to law enforcement. This platform provides the scalable solution to match the desire of a crowdsourced community of OSINT volunteers who want to apply their skills for good in this fight. All the while, they can monitor how their own lead submissions and skills measure up among their peers through an interactive leaderboard tracking system that awards points for successful case submissions. Come join the team today for free and OSINT for good. Have a lifesaving impact on a victim’s life.
