A CANDID MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT
"Don't be duped into paying for overpriced former 'FBI' agents or ex 'elite' law enforcement officers and/or franchised investigation firms with excessive operating costs. Anyone can claim to be part of the elite. When in fact, real investigators get results and do not boast about how good they are.
You will get better results at a fair rate using our agency. Let me share a simple story, among many I have regarding the 'FBI' or the so called 'elite.' As an active law enforcement agent I was in charge of the fugitive warrant team at one time. My partner and I identified bank robbery suspects on a particular case because we had acquired knowledge through a different investigation. We informed FBI agents regarding the out-of-state whereabouts of the real suspects, not the ones they had been chasing in vain. After mocking us and simply not listening, the FBI agents finally arrested the real suspects and took FULL credit on the case. They are simply not elite law enforcement agents because of their title and their persona.
Certainly education and experience as an investigator are important qualities to possess. Our agency most definitely possesses those qualities. However, you cannot teach instinct and that certain knack it takes to follow a trail. Sometimes an investigator has to change directions 180 degrees while working certain cases. That is where the amateurs are separated from the real investigators. The amateurs get tunnel vision because they try to prove something that simply isn't correct, instead of letting the evidence guide them. I have worked with many amateurs in law enforcement, to include FBI agents. I am not biased towards FBI agents, my point is having a title at one time doesn't make you an 'investigator.' It certainly doesn't justify paying an outrageous contract price because of their formal title!
Real investigators have a knack to examine important details and get to the bottom of the most trivial details. Not everyone can be an investigator, because not everyone has this knack to put the pieces of the puzzle together without biases. The reason the FBI failed to find the real robbery suspects (without our help) in my story is because they were filled with biases that blinded them from seeing the small, yet important, details. This agency possesses no such biases and we will find the answers you are seeking!"
-Chief Investigator Christensen
