Discretion is our Profession

Back-Track Investigations Corporate & Criminal

Back-Track Investigations Ltd.'s investigative services give you access to the information and intelligence you need to make critical corporate decisions.

Many companies use professional investigators to get immediate assistance that is tailored to their specific needs. Local law enforcement are overworked, and do not have the resources to give the personalized service companies expect and deserve.

Property Vandalism

Vandalism is a very common crime that can happen to your business, your residence, your vehicle, or other property. Back-Track Investigations Ltd. investigates vandalism while it's taking place in order to identify the culprit(s), or after it has already occurred. Back-Track Investigations Ltd. can monitor the area in which the vandalism has occurred by conducting surveillance in a van, or with other surveillance equipment, such as hidden cameras. Once the evidence has been collected by our licensed investigators, a surveillance report is typed and can be used in litigation. At Back-Track Investigations Ltd., we have a very high success rate and stand behind our evidence 100%. If necessary, the investigator who handled the vandalism case is available to testify in court.

We have had several clients who have suffered from vandalism on a recurring basis. After hiring Back-Track Investigations Ltd., the offenders were apprehended and the vandalism ceased.

Employee Behavior

Back-Track Investigations Ltd. investigates employee behaviour and performance on a regular basis.

Example: Joe is the owner of a major manufacturing plant in which heavy machinery and major equipment is used. He suspects Brian, one of his employees, is smoking marijuana on his breaks and coming back to work intoxicated or under the influence of an illegal drug. This would affect Brian's ability to work with the heavy equipment in a safe manner. Back-Track investigates the situation and collects powerful evidence, including a videotape of the offending behaviour, which is reasonable grounds for termination, and possible criminal charges as well.

This particular type of investigation is also a way to protect the employer if an accident or fatality occurs at the workplace after substance abuse has taken place.

Back-Track Investigations Ltd. also collects evidence of inappropriate behaviour at the workplace while the employer or supervisor is absent, including abuse of company vehicles.

Back-Track Investigations Ltd. has had numerous clients in similar situations, and due to our solid evidence, many employees have been terminated, making workplaces much safer and raising production in our client's companies.

Company Vehicle Abuse

At Back-Track Investigations Ltd. we discretely monitor the use of company vehicles regularly. The reason this service is requested is to obtain video of suspected inappropriate employee behaviour while operating company vehicles.

Example: Dave works for a roofing company and has a company vehicle to use during work hours. However, the owner has received information that Dave may be using the vehicle during the evenings and weekends. He has also received a tip that the vehicle has been seen parked at several nightclubs, etc., as well as loaded with furniture, helping someone move.

When you hire Back-Track Investigations Ltd., we conduct intense surveillance on the vehicle in question in order to determine what exactly is happening, enabling you to solve the problem immediately.

Due to our efficient services, several local and national companies have saved large amounts of money as well as wear and tear on company vehicles. They have gone on to hire more honest and reliable employees and have recommended our services to others.

Corporate Internal Investigations

Our investigators can conduct internal investigations at your business to determine the persons responsible for frauds, thefts and breaches of security. We are often requested to conduct interviews and obtain statements from suspected employees or witnesses to criminal activities.

Intellectual Property Investigations

Intellectual property may be your company's most important asset. We investigate suspected patent, trademark and copyright infringement. We can identify perpetrators and establish the extent of your losses in preparation for litigation. We can also conduct discreet surveillance to identify security breaches in your firm that allow competitors access to valuable information, including unauthorized employee disclosure of confidential information.

Pre-Employment Screening

We create discreet pre-employment character profiles that help you avoid expensive hiring errors. Our investigators use sophisticated interviewing techniques and are experts at extracting and evaluating crucial information. We will verify the prospective employee's academic and professional qualifications, work history, personal references and salary history. Some employers don't check personal references because they believe applicants only supply references that will provide a positive recommendation. We believe that the right questions lead to useful information, including the names of other managers who may offer a more balanced assessment of the applicant's interpersonal skills and work history. We can also interview neighbours, family and friends and conduct polygraph testing if required. A more comprehensive individual background investigation can provide information on credit history, property ownership and criminal and civil records.

WCB/Disability & Insurance Fraud

Many individuals are defrauding the Worker's Compensation Board on a regular basis, as well as private insurance companies. This not only affects the economy in general, but also the corporation or business the individual works for. The annual premiums of the corporations and businesses that the claimant works for rise dramatically when a claim is filed. To combat this situation, the employer will hire an investigator to conduct an investigation on the claimant, including a lifestyle report and if the claim is legitimate.

Back-Track Investigations Ltd.'s investigation will provide accurate, timely, and comprehensive reports supported by the latest investigative technology. Our professional and conclusive results lead to many successful claim evaluations. In the majority of our investigations, the claimant has been, in fact, defrauding the insurance company or WCB.

Death & Disability Fraud

Back-Track Investigations Ltd. can provide a precise and extensive report of all events and details surrounding the claim, including information obtained from interviews, surveillance, witness statements and police reports. Back-Track Investigations Ltd. has successfully uncovered cases of fraudulent claims, resulting in substantial savings for the insurance company.

Caregiver Activites

Do you feel nervous leaving your child or children with someone new? Have you noticed different behaviour from your child or children since hiring a new babysitter? Are you worried about your elderly relative in a care home? Put your mind at ease by hiring Back-Track Investigations Ltd. We can monitor your residence while you're away via a hidden camera professionally installed in an ideal location.

All surveillance is documented on videotape, as well as in a typed report. In the event that your child or elderly relative is mistreated while surveillance is being conducted, you will be notified immediately, as well as the authorities if necessary. As in all cases, our investigators are available to testify in court if required.

Employee Theft

Canadian retailers lost more than $4 million per day in 2000 to workplace theft - including $2 million per day of employee theft. Unexplained product shortages and inventory irregularities are usually due to internal or external theft. We can help your company identify and resolve these problems with employee surveillance, concealed camera installations, individual background investigations, pre-employment screening and the use of investigators posing as customers. Many successful corporations hire private investigators as temporary employees to collect evidence resulting in criminal charges and employee termination. Confidential reports can include information on night shift activity, site security, shipping and inventory irregularities, property damage, safety violations, expense account fraud, drug and alcohol abuse and employee morale. We can train your own retail investigators to prevent shoplifting using the latest methods and investigative technology.

Accident Scene Reconstruction

Our accident reconstruction expert determines the specific circumstances of accidents using a variety of tests and measurements, evaluating collisions involving motor vehicles, bicycles and pedestrians. An evaluation can include tire failure analysis, pre-impact speed determination, driver identification, DNA evidence, collision evasion potential, analysis of seat belt usage and effectiveness, direction of impact force, measurements confirming the extent of damage, road surface abrasions and skid marks. We can provide a visual reconstruction of the accident using sketches, animations and photographs. Accident reconstructions are typically requested by insurance companies and legal firms to prepare for litigation and to assess the possibility of fraud. We also conduct witness interviews, driver's license record searches and background investigations. We provide a detailed report with supporting evidence and can provide expert testimony.

Labour Relations Surveillance

We can conduct discreet surveillance of picket lines during labour disputes and provide background investigations on employees who may threaten your company's physical or intellectual property assets.

Criminal Record Searches

There is no single database with a complete record of all criminal convictions for all jurisdictions. Compiling a complete record requires a thorough search of all jurisdictions where the individual has lived in the past.

Workplace Harassment Investigations

We can help your company avoid negligent-hiring suits and limit workplace violence and harassment that costs Canadian companies millions each year. Our personnel are certified harassment investigators and advisors who can establish a comprehensive policy for your company that reflects federal and provincial government guidelines. We can conduct a thorough investigation into any type of harassment complaint and we can also gather evidence that can help your company avoid wrongful dismissal suits.
