Guardian Group Launches First-Ever 24/7 Crowdsourcing Platform Aimed at Using Open-Source Intelligence to Stop Domestic Child Sex Trafficking
Project 1591® is the first-ever 24/7 crowdsourcing process and platform that enables volunteers to become force multipliers to Guardian Group’s mission of illuminating child victims of sex trafficking in the US. The internet has allowed sex trafficking to increase at a dramatic rate, with an average of 150,000 new escort ads posted daily. Hidden among this massive number are children that are being sold for sex. This is the haystack society is expecting law enforcement (LE) to go through to recover these children. LE often lacks the time, resources and sometimes the research skill set necessary to achieve this.
