Rick Johnson & Associates has been providing discreet, thorough investigative services to Denver firms since 1987. We know the value of accurate information gathered correctly, particularly for legal matters. We are experts at finding the location of and interviewing key witnesses.
The Colorado Legislature repeatedly has declined to require the licensing of private investigators. To fulfill our commitment to the highest standards, we are licensed in Kansas, meeting the stringent requirements of the Kansas Bureau of Investigation’s licensing program under Kansas law. We also are one of the few firms in Colorado to carry $1,000,000 in Errors & Omissions Insurance.

The Best Defense is a Good Defense
Many types of common problems have a common vulnerability – they go on in plain sight or should be easily discovered.
That vulnerability means that my investigative staff often has a clear opportunity to gather the visual and documentary evidence needed in order to drop the hammer on the culprits.
Gathering The Evidence
My staff and I have access to the kind of public and proprietary national records that often can penetrate the corporate veil that the scam artists try to hide behind. We can buy products and order services that you suspect are based on your proprietary information, especially where a former employee now may be working for a competitor or personally competing with your company.
Pilfered merchandise, supplies, and equipment often are advertised for sale in the yard and garage sale sections of the daily newspapers.We can track those ads and check out sale locations that may include items that belong to your business.
We also can check out flea markets, where it is not uncommon to find stolen property, as well as counterfeit clothing and pirated music and computer software openly offered for sale, either by the thief directly or by those to whom it was illegally distributed.
We figuratively can go to lunch with employees suspected of drinking on the job. We can track outside sales people on their rounds to help ascertain whether their daily reports coincide with their actual activities.
On-Location Part 1
We can set up surveillance at business locations, storage locations for supplies, and business offices, where inventory is missing or equipment may have been misappropriated.
Our surveillance would include photographic and videotape evidence of unauthorized activities at these locations, including persons who may be linked to those activities.
On-Location Part 2
We can establish surveillance beginning at an employee’s residence, following the employee throughout the day to identify contacts, locations, and any activity that may verify the trail of misconduct.
Our surveillance objectives are to make a sustaining record of the person or persons involved, the means by which a theft occurs, the methods used to transport stolen property, and the storage destination, if any, as well as to identify any reseller to whom the goods are offered.
Our job, as investigators, is to use every tool at our disposal on your behalf to expose those who would violate your trust for their own personal profit.
