When you need to know the facts and the truth, we are here for you.
We are licensed, bonded and insured to operate anywhere within the State of Iowa, and we are ready to provide a wide range of investigative skills, expertise and resources to get you the truthful facts, answers, information and proof you want, need, and deserve, coupled with the experience to help you evaluate and interpret the information obtained so you can use it in the most effective manner possible, and always in the strictest confidence.
I am a retired Iowa law enforcement officer with over 30 years of highly successful investigative experience, including over 23 years as an Iowa Chief of Police. I have trained, lead and supervised the investigative efforts of many subordinates, in cases ranging from homicide investigations; accidental, unattended and suspicious deaths; sexual assault and abuse; significant embezzlement cases; complex financial, money laundering and tax crimes; multi-state and international human smuggling investigations; election fraud; and all varieties of lesser crimes.
My professional experience includes Peace Officer Certifications in both Iowa and South Dakota; City, County and Federal sworn law enforcement service, including 3 1/2 years as a Federal Task Force Officer (TFO) with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in the Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) division with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
Additionally, I have been a law enforcement instructor/trainer in many areas of public safety, with an emphasis on Emergency Vehicle Operations. I served as an Iowa Law Enforcement Academy (I.L.E.A.), and Internationally Certified Precision Driving Instructor, having trained hundreds of City, County, State and Federal Law Enforcement officers, Fire & Rescue Personnel, and Emergency Medical personnel in lawful and proper emergency vehicle operation, and am well suited as an expert witness on emergency vehicle operation, as well as general law enforcement procedures and best practices.
Our clients range from private Law Firms of all specialties and sizes, to Prosecuting Attorneys, to private individuals who are in need of investigative expertise and/or expert testimony to discover, reveal, document and coherently present the truth in both criminal and civil court cases. We have been sought out for consultations and to lend expertise to the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation, major law enforcement agencies within the State of Iowa, and we have worked with and for both prosecutors and criminal defense attorneys on criminal cases in State and Federal Courts.
Not all Private Investigators are created equally! Most do not have the depth of successful investigative experience we are uniquely qualified to offer our clients.
Initial consultations are always free, and are for the purpose of understanding the nature and scope of what information you wish to obtain, and to provide you with an honest assessment of the probability of obtaining the information sought, and a candid discussion of the amount of time necessary to accomplish the desired results. And, if after talking to you it's apparent to us that you don't need a private investigator, we'll tell you that too. In fact, we have that conversation a lot. We will be honest with you, even at our own expense.
We adhere to the strictest standards of lawful and ethical behavior, and for that reason, we reserve the right to decline any client or investigation requested.
Unless other arrangements are agreed to in advance, a retainer, and the execution of a Professional Services Agreement and Confidentiality Agreement will be required prior to any investigative efforts being undertaken.
