Shepherd's Watch Foundation (SWF) is the vision of several private investigators and victim advocates working together to combat sex trafficking. The idea for SWF began in 2016 with of one of our private investigators and as she dealt with the growing cases of sex trafficking first hand, she knew God was calling her to do more to help the victims she encountered. In the four years that followed, God began to assemble a diverse team of advocates who have been trained in the world of sex trafficking & exploitation, and have a passion for helping those who have been affected by it.
SWF is unique in that we have a team of private investigators to assist all levels of law enforcement by providing investigative intelligence, in order to identify victims. Our PI’s are part of our team, so we have direct access to their expertise rather than having to call on an outside agency. Our diverse group of victim advocates come from a variety of professional backgrounds including the travel and restaurant industries, hotel management, cybersecurity, engineering, education, customer service/sales, real estate, law enforcement and banking/accounting fields.
Because we know this is an arduous fight and we can not do it alone, we work in close collaboration with local law enforcement and other organizations aimed at assisting victims of sex crimes. Together, we will work tirelessly to combat sex trafficking and support those affected through networked services, as they transition into independent and empowered survivors.
