A Few Words About ACS

A Full Service Investigation Company

In 1995, I founded ACS as a loss prevention consulting agency to middle market companies. As we grew, we realized that we excelled at surveillance and claims investigations and became recognized as a leading insurance claims investigations provider, and our client base began to grow. One highlight was being awarded Walmart’s Vendor of the Year in 1997 for Outstanding Video Surveillance. For ten years, our focus remained steady, as we grew our firm into eleven states.

In 2005, we responded to a market need and expanded rapidly into mortgage fraud investigations. Over the next seven years, we welcomed over 60 staff investigators to our team.

As that market slowed, we decided to return to our original mission – provide outstanding regional investigative services to law firms, insurers, corporations and individuals throughout the Great Lakes and Midwest. Now licensed in five states (IN, KY, MI, OH, WI), we are well-positioned for the next 25 years as a super-regional provider of insurance, corporate, legal, domestic, loss prevention, and financial investigations.
