We are a professional investigative firm that has been helping businesses and individuals with their investigative needs since 1997.
Employee Theft and Misconduct Investigations
Whether your business is suffering from a simple case of one employee stealing from the cash register or a complex fraud hidden within your financial records, we can help. 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.
