Business/Corporate Support Services

Hostile Termination/Walk-off
In today’s ever changing workplace, PDA is there to assist business owners, corporations and government agencies when hostilities are anticipated. Agents will assist in the termination process or completely handle the entire termination. We also provide protective surveillance to prevent any repercussions by the terminated employee.

Privatized Law Enforcement™

Kidnapping and Parental Child Abduction
When an act of this nature occurs you can count on the resources of PDA’s manpower and tracking skills to get the job done. This is coupled with our exclusive PDA Hound Dog® data base tracking system. We can find anyone, anywhere, anytime.

When we are assigned to this task, we have the manpower resources to immediately assign up to (25) agents to locate the missing child/children. PDA field agents are supported by over 20 individuals involved in supporting field agent activities.

Stand By To Keep The Peace
With most law enforcement agencies overwhelmed with criminal activity and security issues, PDA is there once again to assist private parties and businesses. Should the need arise; PDA’s agents can assist in the enforcement of court orders prohibiting the transfer or removal of protected assets or collateral. What ever the court orders, PDA’s agents will enforce!

In the event of possible physical altercations, PDA’s knowledgeable agents can take control of the situation by “keeping the peace”. Any violators will be arrested and booked into custody with law enforcement.

Domestic Terrorism
Post 911 has heightened concern for potential “wanna be” or “copy cat” acts of terrorism. Some of these individuals may deliver vain threats while others may carry out criminal acts of violence. Either way, PDA agents have received additional training and are capable of handling these situations. We have participated with FBI agents on the first identified “Bio Terrorism” case in the U.S.A.

Theft of Proprietary Property and Corporate Espionage
Whether it is a former or disgruntled employee, PDA agents have investigated numerous instances where employees have been recruited to “obtain” proprietary information, either for monetary gain or as an act of retribution against the company. Often times these matters can be quickly resolved and the responsible parties prosecuted. We have also investigated highly and sophisticated off shore counterfeiting and theft cases.
