With COVID-19 wreaking havoc across the globe, the risk to sex trafficking victims is increased. The exploitation of victims continues at an alarming rate. In fact, Guardian Group has been working overtime fielding calls from law enforcement agencies, hotel partners, and community members. As law enforcement and other public service agencies continue to be overextended in order to handle the impact of COVID-19, the need for and value of Guardian Group's support and services are amplified.
The exploitation of sex trafficking victims continues at an alarming rate, and Guardian Group is responding to requests to support law enforcement and community partners to assist with emergency cases of potential victims and missing children. The need for training is also critical as vulnerable populations have had their normal safeguards removed.
During these times, when there are so many things to worry over, Guardian Group remains committed to protecting our most vulnerable. This project ensures that communities and agencies have access to this crucial assistance and training.
We are committed to protecting our most vulnerable and to looking for those who are lost, being recruited and sexually exploited.
