As a fully licensed, independent investigative and security consulting firm, APA can provide a professional comprehensive approach to your management needs. A few of our services include:
APA functions with most clients in much the same manner as larger firms' corporate security departments. Clients have found it more cost efficient to call upon APA to deal with the occasional serious security problem. Clients get the benefit of calling upon APA for experienced, professional security consulting advice and assistance, which would otherwise require the expense of staffing a full-time corporate security department.
No longer is a comprehensive security program a luxury, it's an essential ingredient for good management. Leaked trade secrets, foiled marketing plans, and unexplained equipment, cash, and inventory shortages due to business abuse can be avoided. Often problems occur because of inadequate policies and expertise to deal with business abuse. APA assists client management in establishing policies and programs that clearly define the expectations of the employer while ensuring accountability, efficiency, and fairness.
To ensure autonomy and unbiased judgment in recommending security programs, procedures, techniques, and equipment, APA is not affiliated with any security equipment, alarm, or guard company.
