Employee Theft and Misconduct Investigations

We conduct investigations into single cases of theft, mysterious inventory shortages, and employee misconduct-such as drug use. Through a careful examination of the evidence, along with professional interviews and the use of appropriate investigative techniques, we can help you determine the source and extent of the problem. We can then work with you to help prevent future losses of this nature.
