The Asservo Project
What do you know about human trafficking and child exploitation? Did you know that human trafficking is one of the fastest growing criminal enterprises? This week we have Joseph Sweeney the CEO and Founder of The Asservo Project right here in Allegheny County.
The mission of The Asservo Project is to combat global human trafficking and sexual predators, support the recovery of victims, and aid in the imprisonment of perpetrators.
Joseph Sweeney serves as the Founder/CEO of The Asservo Project. For over 25 years, Mr. Sweeney has devoted himself to serving his country and community as a former SWAT Operator, Bomb Squad Commander, and U.S government Explosive Security Specialist. While serving overseas for Anti-Terrorism programs, he had conversations with colleagues about child kidnapping and human trafficking. Once aware of the size and scope of this epidemic and the lack of efforts to combat it, he felt he had to do something to help these people and, consequently, The Asservo Project was formed. They provide resources to assist Law Enforcement, conduct awareness seminars, and build relationships with global organizations.
Mr. Sweeney is also the former International Director of the International Association of Bomb Technicians and Investigators (IABTI) and currently serves on its Board of Trustees. He is also a member in good standing with the National Tactical Officers Association.
So, come on September 27, 2019 expecting to have your eyes opened and be educated about the extent of this problem.
