“Working with Guardian Group on sex trafficking cases has led to multiple arrests, convictions, and the identification of gang related trafficking in our area and other states. The information they provide is timely, valuable, credible, and always a huge time saver. Partnering with them allows us to focus efforts on a successful recovery of a victim and the possible identification of a trafficker.“
Having seen the activity in the past at past properties I wanted to do something that basically made us stand out and say ‘we are not going to stand for this on our property. Our property is a place to be safe.”
