Employee Theft Detection
Employee theft or theft of a servant is a major issue in many businesses and no industry is without it. It is sad but the reality is that it is often done by longer-serving personnel because they have learnt how to circumvent procedures. The NZ Police have indicated that staff theft is responsible for more profit loss than theft by customers.
Loss prevention is a real and ever present issue and Insite Security has helped numerous commercial enterprises detect employee theft and help in preventing further cases saving them many thousands of dollars in future lost income.

“We knew our business should have been operating at a profit but every month we were having to put money in to pay the bills. We called Insite Security in to take a look at our processes and within a week they had identified that our Manager was stealing $400 each shift that he worked. As he was rostered on for 4 Shifts per week and had been working for us for over 10 months, we worked out he had stolen about $50,000 from us! Insite Security gathered up all the evidence and interviewed him. He admitted all of these thefts, made a written statement acknowledging his guilt and resigned on the spot. Our business is once again making a good profit.”
“The petty cash tin at our work was getting hit once or twice every week with around $20.00 or $40.00 taken each time. As we have a large staff it was really hard to pin down who was doing it. My wife and I were very upset to know that we had a thief in our company as we liked and trusted all of our staff. We called in Insite Security and within a couple of days they were able to conclusively prove that it was our Foreman who was stealing from us. Insite interviewed him & he admitted having stolen all of the money. He paid it all back to prior to resigning. The hardest thing for us to understand was that he had worked for us for 7 years and I had always thought of him as a personal friend. In the end it was great to have the matter sorted out and suspicion taken away from all the rest of our innocent staff.”
“We called in Insite Security to investigate when it became apparent that our till balances were consistently out by around $40.00 a day, 3 or 4 days a week. These were the only days that we had 2 part time staff working for us.
“Two days after starting their enquiries, Insite identified one of the part-timers as being the thief. On the evidence that Insite had gathered the Police were called in and the girl was interviewed by them. She admitted being the thief, paid us back $1000 and immediately resigned. Insite Security did a fantastic job getting this problem sorted out for us.”
