Corporations lose millions annually to asset misappropriation, fraudulent worker compensation claims and other types of theft. Workplace violence and similar incidents bring security to the forefront of company operations.
AT-RISK offers an entire suite of investigation and security services to support corporations in these and other situations in maintaining safe and secure work environments.
From assistance with hostile terminations and stalking incidents to worker compensation claims, AT-RISK provides multiple service solutions, including:
Workplace violence, hostile termination, stalking. AT-RISK’s extensive history and involvement in the threat assessment community, particularly through its leadership in the Association of Threat Assessment Professionals (ATAP), puts it at the forefront of an industry which regularly deals with the realities associated with violence in the workplace, hostile terminations, employee strikes and stalking incidents. Detailed assessments by threat assessment professionals, including operational psychologists, as well as protective services and intelligence, backgrounding, data analysis, interviewing and surveillance are among the services we provide to clients.
Asset misappropriation and worker compensation. In cases involving theft, as well as fraudulent worker compensation claims, AT-RISK couples overt and covert surveillance operations with a 24/7, full-service Global Security Operations Center (GSOC) which can provide real-time updates and analysis to investigators working in the field.
Standard Operating Procedures (SOP). AT-RISK’s consulting and field staff work together to plan and develop SOP for clients with limited access areas and information. Additionally, we offer covert camera placement and monitoring to work in concert with SOP to provide robust security solutions in complex situations.
