Good Security Prevents Problems and Losses

Asset Protection Associates, Inc. (APA), one of North Carolina’s oldest investigative companies, was founded in 1978 to specialize in solving the multitude of security and business abuse issues confronting corporations and institutions. 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 and background investigations were subsequently instituted to assist companies in the hiring process to help prevent the problem before it started.

Consulting Services

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.
