Guardian Group is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit whose mission is to prevent and disrupt the sex trafficking of women and children in the United States. In 2022, Project 1591® was launched to scale the nation-wide support to law enforcement with the intent of saving them time researching and identifying potential victims.
Project 1591® is the first-ever 24/7 crowdsourcing process and platform that harnesses the power of skilled volunteers to help illuminate victims of sex trafficking in the United States to law enforcement. Each Publicly Available Information Report (PAIR) developed through this process is individually vetted by a Guardian Group analyst and then delivered to law enforcement via a state-wide distribution email list. This is all free of charge.
These reports contain the identified individual and valuable account information that can be used by law enforcement to identify force, fraud, or coercion if sex trafficking is occurring.

“Our department has been partnering with Guardian Group for several years. The partnership has severely reduced the manhours required to identify, locate, and rescue victims of human trafficking. The new Project 1591® process streamlines the leads provided by Guardian Group and securely delivers them to ensure sensitive information is not compromised. The leads provided by Guardian Group and the Project 1591® process have made significant improvements in our investigation into human trafficking, the rescuing of victims and the apprehension of human trafficking offenders.”
