INTERNAL INVESTIGATIONS

You may find yourself in a situation where, because of the personnel involved or the nature of the issue you are dealing with, it would be beneficial to bring in an independent, unbiased investigator. PST has the experience and services to assist in these types of delicate and important investigations. Our expertise includes third-party investigations, workplace investigations and internal affairs investigations.

Our internal investigations services start with close coordination with agency management to review contracts, policies and applicable regulations, determine the scope, timing and procedural rules of the investigation. Once the details of the investigation have been determined, PST Investigations will conduct interviews, provide transcriptions, provide updates and prepare a final report with the factual findings of the investigation. If needed, PST Investigations can offer support for appeals or other administrative matters subsequent to the investigation.
