Business intelligence for companies of all sizes

Dallas’s local economy would be nothing without its workforce. Employers across the city seek out the very best qualified professionals to install within their organization. A Dallas private investigator can acquire regular work processing background checks for businesses. Many employers do not opt for comprehensive background checks in their hiring process, due either to lack of resources or a judgement against their usefulness. There are many websites that will boast of the best information available on any given person for a nominal fee. However, many employers continue to find over and over again  the information they paid for may be incorrect, incomplete, or missing from the record entirely. Not only do these sites exaggerate the quality of their intelligence, but these background checks also do not have the benefit of being reviewed by an intelligence expert. Through their licensure by the state, private investigators have access to verified databases on par with that of law enforcement that allow them to get the full picture of a subject’s background. In addition, their experience with patterns of human behavior and observation allow them to bring crucial context to a subject’s history. For example, since the quality of data entry is still subject to human error, the private investigator would know to independently verify a piece of information on a subject’s background check to ensure that the record reflected the truth. A Dallas private investigator can also look at a subject’s history and contextualize certain patterns of behavior like address history or criminal history so the client knows they have the full picture when considering an applicant for hire.

Improving companies from within

When it comes to private client services for personal crises, Lauth’s Dallas private investigators can apply their corporate knowledge to help families and individuals throughout the globe. Private citizens can benefit from the same intelligence and fact-finding that gives employers peace of mind. One of the most fabled operations of a private investigator video surveillance on a cheating spouse in an infidelity investigation. Depending on the laws in each state, a private investigator can track the movements of a cheating spouse with a GPS system, track their movements, photograph evidence of their infidelity, and provide comprehensive reports for their clients for divorce proceedings or other forms of litigation. Lauth can provide clarity in matters of child custody, criminal defense, violence and harassment, and attorney support. The background checks that give employers the full picture on their applicants can be used by a private individual looking to hire someone to work in their home, maybe in child care or home repairs. In cases of child custody or abuse, private investigators can provide invaluable insight to parents and custodial guardians regarding what goes on when they are not caring for the children. Our investigators use their detective skillsets to support attorneys in civil suits and criminal defense, serving as one of the first lines of due diligence in life-changing matters. Our private investigation team is comprised of former military and law enforcement personnel who have experience within and collaborating with offices in the criminal justice system. Our Dallas private investigators are trained to provide expert testimony in a courtroom as independent witnesses.

Fact-finding in violent crime & sex trafficking

In the cases of violent crimes, a private investigator might be able to provide victims and their families with answers when law enforcement cannot. A private investigator can use their access to verified databases to build background checks on relevant subjects in a case, source geosocial intelligence to get independently verify testimony of witnesses in the case, develop a rapport with witnesses, and follow the trail where the leads take them while the trail is hot. Documenting everything along the way, private investigators can work in tandem with law enforcement to get justice for victims of violent crimes, harassment, and unsolved homicides.

With the tourism also associated with Dallas and its proximity to the nation’s southern border and east coast, citizens of Dallas and the state of Texas and tourists alike can also fall victim to the dark world of sex trafficking. Sex trafficking and missing persons are two specialties of our Dallas private investigators. It is not uncommon for vacation spots to create high demand for sex trafficking activity. Our CEO & founder, Thomas Lauth, is one of the nation’s foremost experts on missing children and adults, and uses the same methodology he’s used for 30 years to bring answers to families who are missing their loved ones. Our Dallas private investigators know that missing person cases can easily go cold if there is not swift intervention on behalf of investigators. This is why many families hire a private investigator to conduct a missing person investigation concurrently with law enforcement to ensure that no stone is left unturned in their disappearance. This increases the chances of finding answers for the families of missing persons, and finally giving them closure they need. Lauth has successfully recovered missing children and adults and helped them reunite with their families, assisting agencies like Interpol, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the U.S. State Department, the U.S. Consulate and other foreign embassies on a myriad of cases, including human trafficking.
