Guardian Group is a nonprofit organization comprised of former special operations military, law enforcement and intelligence community professionals, working
with law enforcement agencies to end sex trafficking in the United States. The Guardian Group team draws upon decades of experience fusing intelligence
and operations to achieve counter network effects against sex-trafficking on the national level.
We focus on predators and their networks, specifically those involved in child sex-trafficking with the intent to gain an offensive advantage against this
problem. While the rescue and recovery of children is paramount, our offensive advantage enables us to disrupt the exploitation cycle before rescue
becomes necessary. The DEFENSIVE component of our strategy focuses on providing recognition & response training to organizations in the
private sector where sex trafficking occurs; specifically the travel, tourism, transportation, service, and hospitality industries.
Guardian Group also focuses on training the public sector and the organizations tasked to stop sex trafficking. This includes law enforcement, prosecutors,
victim service providers and multi-disciplinary teams. The OFFENSIVE division of our strategy is our active involvement in the pursuit, apprehension,
prosecution and incarceration of predators.
Guardian Group is committed to an aggressive, comprehensive approach to taking the fight to human trafficking.
The first part of our strategy focuses on providing training to the travel and hospitality industries. The service industry is where
the predators hide and it is where we need to hunt.
The second part of the strategy is active involvement and assistance in the pursuit and apprehension of the criminals. Guardian Group’s
elite team of experienced professionals work with law enforcement and special agencies, primarily by augmenting their intelligence needs, so that
they can apprehend and incarcerate predators involved in human trafficking.
Guardian Group provides four key Programs and Services in the fight against human trafficking:
Corporate & Community Engagement
Guardian Seal Training Project
Guardian Group is a collaborative team that provides resources, expertise, and information to our partners with the goal of maximizing the ability to detect, illuminate, prevent, and deter predators. We facilitate local solutions, helping organizations create one response system to counter sex trafficking and coordinate rescue and reintegration of victims.
Guardian Group established the Central Oregon CSEC Response Team, which has received State and Federal recognition.
