Garrett Investigators is a licensed Private Investigation Firm serving the state of Indiana.
Law firms, corporations, insurance companies, private parties and entities all have reasons to procure the services of a private investigator.
Our investigators perform all investigative services. We've listed a few here:
Workplace theft that may appear trivial but is still illegal. Defining this can help employees know they can report any form of theft. Examples include theft of merchandise, stock, company property or even stealing from co-workers.
Again, this may sound obvious, but an understanding of what is actual sexual harassment varies across people, companies, and cultures. With such ambiguity, this type of misconduct can often go unreported. It covers not only harassment between co-workers, but also customers, suppliers, associates and more.
Pretty much workplace bullying. Abuse of power is when a person misuses their authority to intimidate or berate others. This can take on so many forms and be difficult for people to reveal over concern of reprisal. A reporting channel is effective in uncovering such behavior, especially if you are specific about what is unacceptable behavior in your organization.
This doesn’t just mean huge corporate fraud or even ‘fiddling the books’ (which is also misconduct). It’s about, for example, forging signatures, editing environmental documentation to improve results, or making up compliance certifications. All of which are illegal and therefore should be reported.
Health and Safety (H&S) rules and regulations are in place for a very good reason. If these are breached, whether once or continuously, they could cause a dangerous situation, even fatality. If a person sees a H&S breach but isn’t sure how to expose it, a whistleblowing channel provides an appropriate and secure place to do so.
Accidents happen, but if an employee is intentionally causing damage to goods or property it needs to be revealed. Not only is it unethical, it could put others in serious danger, so you will want to know about it.
Drug and/or alcohol use in a workplace is usually included in a company’s code of conduct, so any abuse of this is breaching rules. Being under the influence puts others at risk, and in some cases it's also breaking the law.
Common red flag injuries that indicate nursing home abuse include:
Common types of cases of domestic investigations:
A due diligence investigation probes deeply into the history of a business, property, individual, or other subject. An investigation can uncover any illegal or improper activity that has been suppressed. It can reveal a history of litigation that the subject was involved in in the past. It can also provide in-depth information regarding a subject’s finances, past performance, client history, reputation, and anything else that could be a liability.
Some specific examples of liabilities that an investigation might reveal include:

According to Merriam-Webster dictionary, gaslighting is a psychological manipulation of a person usually over an extended period of time that causes the victim to question the validity of their own thoughts, perception of reality, or memories and typically leads to confusion, loss of confidence and self-esteem, uncertainty of one's emotional or mental stability, and a dependency on the perpetrator. If you're in a relationship that reflects this description, your partner maybe using manipulation to cover up his/her domestic or criminal behaviors. Contact us to learn more.
