Administrative, Civil & Criminal Investigations

No school or university is immune to internal complaints from employees, administrators, students and community members. Oftentimes, those tasked with investigating these complaints are not properly trained to handle a comprehensive investigation or are involved in the investigation as a witness or as the subject of the complaint. Community perception in regards to how a complaint is handled should be of the utmost concern to all stakeholders. It is critically important that educators take a skilled, unbiased approach in investigating all complaints. Using an independent, qualified third party investigator to handle such matters can alleviate much of the community concern and allow the school to focus on what it does best – serving its students.
