Sealed City™ Program

Imagine a city where sex traffickers know they can make a lot of money, but feel so unsafe doing business there, they go elsewhere not even stopping to fill their gas tanks.

That is what we at Guardian Group call a ‘Sealed City™’ – where everyone from law enforcement, hospitals, hotels, educators and the public are aware of the problem, know how to spot the signs of sex trafficking and what to do when they come across it.

Learn how your community can benefit from becoming a Sealed City™.
