To set up a successful investigative strategy our experienced team, with corporate, police, and military backgrounds, provide you with strong resources to analyse available information, patterns of activity, and evidence. All investigations are customised to meet the individual circumstances of your case. Our goal is to identify the perpetrator/s, stop the crime, and provide the evidence you need.
Property crimes are often repeated in a pattern and intensify over time. This can lead to a considerable loss for companies, organizations, and individuals. As private investigators, we are often presented with circumstantial evidence, such as inventory shrinkage, employees living beyond their means, rumours in the workplace, or reports from whistleblowers or other companies. We help you identify and investigate your suspicions and provide hard evidence from a well-proven set of methods.
