Security Consultants

Security Consultants. Leaving no stone unturned.

Fraud. Corruption. Disruption. These are cancers that can eat away at businesses and communities without your even knowing it. Even with all of the physical protection recruited and in place, the danger may be on the inside. Part of the Profile Group, Farleigh Consultants forms an integral part of our service offering.

Staffed and managed by former police and military personnel, our Security Consultants have both a local and a global reach. Where trouble on the streets appears confined to your borough, it may have its roots many miles away. While our investigations may start in the UK, many will take us to far flung corners of the world.

Private Investigations

Statistics suggest that more than 80% of corporate fraud is committed by existing employees. Most cases are uncovered by accident, many when it’s too late. That’s why we place as much emphasis on prevention as we do on recovery. Before trouble strikes, we will audit and examine, ring-fence and upgrade, then re-examine – systems, people, processes, supply chains and more. We’ll provide you with specific indicators you can monitor to spot trouble.

If what you suspect has already happened, we’ll investigate – covertly and discreetly – until we identify the source of the problem. As well as tracing missing funds and assets, we will protect your brands and intellectual property by going after product counterfeiters, tracing patent and trade mark infringements. Our investigators have access to forensic programmers that can spot hacking attempts on your computer infrastructure.

Security Consultancy

Even if you have had security measures in place for many years and believe you’ve covered all the bases, it pays to have an independent security audit. From government buildings to shopping malls, offices and factories to hotels and private homes, we compile comprehensive, clear reports that will leave you free to decide on your next steps. We will:

  • Identify weaknesses in your physical and procedural security systems
  • Review access controls and CCTV measures
  • Examine accident prevention measures
  • Trace flaws in your Information Technology network
  • Look at the safety of staff, visitors and clients
  • Assess and act to protect assets both tangible and intangible.

Vetting & Screening

Just as Officers in the security industry have to be screened, the same applies in other professional walks of life. We can carry out independent vetting checks to various levels, screening councillors, doctors, nurses, teachers, childcare and social workers. As well as public sector employees, our Security Consultants are involved with the private sector, making tenant enquiries on behalf of landlords before tenancies begin, and helping them deal with nuisance tenants they may have inherited.

Litigation Support

Backing up our surveillance and investigation work are the measures we take to ensure you have a successful day in court. Whether it’s a matter of tracing witnesses and defendants, locating assets as part of making a civil claim or obtaining statements and photographs to support your case, our Litigation Support Services provide the backup you need to make your case and win.

Anti-Social Behaviour

With anti-social behaviour on our streets affecting more and more communities, we can help Local Authorities and Housing Associations take control of often difficult situations without putting their own people in danger. Our evidence-gathering under the Professional Witness Scheme will provide video evidence that will lead to successful prosecutions.

Our Security Consultants tackle anti-social behaviour in the widest sense, not just youths running riot on the streets. They’ll help with:

  • Housing Benefit Fraud
  • Fly-tipping
  • Illegal lettings and sub-lettings
  • Corrupt contractors and sub-contractors

We work closely with the Police and other agencies, always within the framework of the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000 (RIPA) and the European Convention on Human Rights.

Surveillance

As a stand-alone exercise or part of a larger investigation, our experts use state-of-the-art audio and video equipment, as well as covert cameras to gather information. Our surveillance evidence is designed to be used in court proceedings, helping our clients build a watertight case.

Something as straightforward as stealing from a till. Plant and equipment theft. Or much more complex cases that can be difficult to prove – employees abusing the system with long term sickness claims, fraudulent medical insurance claims or moonlighting directors. We can even place our undercover operatives into employment so they can track malpractice from the inside.

Background Checks

As well as looking at individuals, our Security Consultants look at companies. We will carry out due diligence checks and background enquiries to validate proposed corporate takeovers, joint ventures, strategic alliances and major investments. We can trace assets to reveal signs of money laundering. Our corporate services can look at issues of fraud and theft on a worldwide scale, both within an organisation or in collusion with affiliated companies, contractors and suppliers. Before your merger plans progress too far, we can positively vet executives, managers and staff, looking for evidence of detrimental business activities.

Contact Profile Security today – in confidence – and see how far our Security Consultants can reach to solve and prevent fraud in all its forms.
