Asset Protection Associates, Inc. (APA), one of North Carolina's oldest investigative companies, was founded in 1978 specializing in business consulting services to include security surveys and vulnerability analysis. Consulting services quickly led to business related investigations such as theft, fraud, and embezzlement, to name a few. After resolving the detected problems, clients requested APA provide seminars and workshops to train managers and supervisors as to their duties and responsibilities. Pre-employment screening was subsequently instituted to assist companies in the hiring process to help prevent the problem before it started.

APA clients are able to call upon experienced, professional consultants, with diverse security, intelligence, legal, and law enforcement backgrounds that provide quick, effective response to client needs regardless of location. For over 25 years, APA has specialized in solving the multitude of security and business abuse issues that corporations and institutions are facing in today's workplace.

Confidentiality of our clients is of utmost concern. However, if necessary, references can be provided to qualified inquirers. APA limits its services to business clientele only. APA does not conduct marital or personal investigations.
