Our clients are provided with professional former law enforcement officers experienced in surveillance techniques, competent report writing and courtroom testimony.Our goal is to provide the highest level of service at a reasonable rate.

We provide services in many areas of private investigation such as infidelity, insurance fraud, missing persons and background checks.We also provide searches by our drug detection K-9 Unit.

Detection dogs discourage employees from bringing drugs into the workplace. Areas of search can include warehouses, employee locker areas, parking lots, vehicles or most any other areas that illegal drugs may be concealed.

The use of drug detection dogs can accurately identify locations where the odor of illegal drugs exists. Our dogs are certified through the National Narcotics detector Dog Association to detect the odors of marijuana, cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine.

These dogs are also cross-trained to detect the presence of firearms (gunpowder).

All dogs are recertified annually. The dogs work at a fairly rapid pace and can search a large area in a reasonable amount of time.
