Investigators and Senior Investigators
For operational reasons we do not display photographs of our investigative agents. What we would like you to know is that we have a diverse group of men and women from various ethnic and social backgrounds. Some of our investigators are bilingual, which has proven to be very helpful during investigations in certain neighborhoods. Our staff is our most valuable asset and reflects the diversity of the claims filed in the regions we serve. It is our proven philosophy that an investigation has more success when an investigator is more relaxed and less noticeable in a given neighborhood. We also believe that we reduce liability when we utilize a female investigator on female surveillance subjects.
