PURSUIT® Team Volunteer
"The training provided in support of Guardian Group's offensive mission played an integral component to successfully identifying victims of sex trafficking. Having prior knowledge and experience with OSINT techniques upon volunteering for the PURSUIT® team, I thought I would be ready to go. However, more is needed to support the counter sex trafficking mission. Understanding the crime, and the indicators of, is the most important part in being successful. This training moves you past false trafficking perceptions to allow you to identify sex trafficking indicators while you pursue the true identification of potential victims. It is important the volunteer recognize the indicators so the best possible support to law enforcement is provided. This is learned through the Guardian Group training."
Our department's detectives have found Guardian Group to be reliable and dedicated in its anti-human trafficking efforts, which includes the organization's distribution of needed information throughout the law enforcement community. Guardian Group has proven to be a reliable source of information and a reliable partner during these investigations. Guardian Group is most definitely a "force multiplier," which permits this department to address multiple issues with our manpower; something which would be much more difficult without the dedication and resolve of this organization.
I have to admit, I was at first skeptical of what the group would offer, but over the past few years they have proven themselves to be an invaluable resource. Their ability to gather open source intelligence saves us valuable time which allows investigators to continue moving forward with other facets of the case, while still gaining this needed and valuable information. Due to our limited time and resources, it is my team's goal to conduct data driven investigations which allows us to efficiently locate and rescue victims. Information from Guardian Group has been instrumental in our success at accomplishing this goal.
