There are a number of good reasons for using professional investigators to monitor personnel. A typical example; the desire to clarify internal crimes such as theft or embezzlement – especially if a specific person is suspected.
Using professional investigative techniques, our detectives may uncover crimes committed by employees within the company.
Classic areas of application are, for example:
Theft of cash, stealing company goods or products, misappropriation of funds or leaking important documents. It is not uncommon for competing companies to use internal spies in to track obtain company secrets, such as plans, recipes, configurations or ideas. In these cases, we can also discretely integrate our own investigators into the company in order to conduct targeted investigations and counter-espionage.

It is always advisable to document any and all irregularities, such as the lack of money or goods, as precisely as possible in advance of a professional investigation.
Complete logging also includes the date, time and the names of the employees who were in the company at the time of the suspected crime or who had access to the rooms from which the objects disappeared.
