Who We Are

Mission: Guardian Group’s 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.

Guardian Group is a “Team of Teams,” comprised of former special operations military, law enforcement and intelligence community professionals, working to disrupt sex trafficking in the United States. The offensive team utilizes the skills and expertise of these elite veterans to act as a force multiplier for law enforcement nationwide, while reinvesting in our nation’s veterans.

Our defensive team is staffed with acclaimed corporate trainers and educators, traveling throughout the United States providing the vital training necessary to disrupt sex trafficking here in the United States. The team specializes in equipping the hospitality industry, law enforcement community, corporations and community members to recognize and respond to sex trafficking situations.

Guardian Group is working in direct support to Law Enforcement agencies across the United States. We guard the privacy of those relationships but can offer references to any LE agency interested in partnering. We are also in strategic partnerships with  world-class organizations, academic and corporate that understand the social and business benefits of joining us in this fight.

“I came in contact with Guardian Group in 2017. A large push for me reaching out to them was that I personally saw a deficit in online intelligence more or less, meaning my own basic understanding on how to correctly monitor my offenders was lacking. And so, when I reached out to them they offered me a lot of tools and resources, such as search engines, and things to look out for, red flags, lingo, things like that, and that was a huge resource for me.”

“When it comes to ORLA’s relationship with our vendors, Guardian Group is a provider of crucial training so as an association we try and focus on the things we do best and let our partners do what they do best and in this case we are very fortunate that Guardian Group has excellent working relationship to law enforcement.”

– Jason Brandt, President + CEO Oregon Restaurant and Lodging Association

“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.”
