The Police & Employee Fraud

Many business owners are under the impression that the Police will conduct investigations into employee fraud. While this may be correct in a few situations. The fact is that most law enforcement agencies are busy. Their caseload is overwhelming, and as a former Police Officer I can tell you that most crimes reported do not get investigated. There is simply not enough officers and budget money to handle it all.

Therefore, if you go to them with a mostly unsolved situation of employee fraud they will take a report but in most situations nothing more will be done. Even if they do take the case on the fact is that very few Detectives know how to investigate employee fraud and theft. That is why the retail industry has Loss Prevention Departments. LP professionals are specialists in this type of investigation. A good LP investigator can conduct the average employee fraud or theft investigation in just a day or two.

After the facts are gathered a good LP investigator will interview the subjects and generally obtain a written admission. After putting the necessary elements of the investigation together a presentation can be made to the Police or Prosecutor.
