Joseph Sweeney


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 working 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 effort to combat it, he felt he had to do something to help these people and consequently The Asservo Project was formed, an organization to combat the Human Trafficking and Child Exploitation epidemic. We provide resources to assist Law Enforcement and conduct awareness seminars and build relationships with global organizations, The Asservo Project will succeed in rescuing and helping those affected by this criminal enterprise.   

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.
