Interviews are often necessary to establish responsibility and liability. They must be conducted by only the most experienced investigators as an improperly conducted interview and investigation is a liability, creating morale, labour and litigation claims.
The use of statements are subject to a wide array of scrutiny in the Criminal and Civil courts and before other regulatory bodies. Our team is comprised of licensed private investigators, former police detectives and police officers. Our investigators have been conducting these types of interviews for many years to the satisfaction of retail and corporate clients, law enforcement agencies and the courts.
The Investigators Group team of investigators conducts in-depth investigations while maintaining the highest standards of discretion and ethical practices and provide our clients detailed written reports including recommendations for follow up activities.
A licensed private investigator is trained in investigative techniques and must understand the procedural steps required to be followed in order for video surveillance to be admissible.
Employers can conduct surveillance using tools such as a swipe-card system, which data can be used for time-management and disciplinary purposes, or cameras.
I have seen first-hand how fraud can be harmful to a company’s reputation and brand. Engaging in a fraud investigation is difficult and can erode the trust and morale of employees and raise questions and concerns to your outside relationships, customers, suppliers and even prospective employees. That is why before engaging in any investigation, I will ensure that I explain to the client the investigation process, the potential scope and risks, and care is taken in planning the execution and timing of any investigation.
