Theft & Drug Misuse
The client, a leading Civil Engineering company working on a £350m construction project suspected it was suffering substantial thefts of steel and other materials. The client company suspected a sub-contracted firm and Linx International was instructed to launch a covert investigation. Through the use of undercover operatives and infiltration of the main workforce, the surveillance operation revealed the primary thief was a manager employed by the client company. The sub-contracted firm was completely exonerated.
The investigation also revealed a number of other crime and malpractice issues and produced evidence of widespread drug abuse, theft, fraudulent payments to suppliers, forged heavy plant competency permits and other serious breaches in Health & Safety regulations. As a result, in excess of thirty employees were dismissed without any redress and the company avoided the risk of prosecution by statutory bodies.
At the conclusion of this project the client company contracted Linx International to provide Drug Awareness Training to its middle and senior site management.
