Investigative & Loss Prevention Services
Gurvich Detective Agency, our in-house investigative and loss prevention division, has been around just as long as NOPP. Staffed by former claims adjusters, FBI, NOPD, JPSO and district attorney personnel, these services are available to our customers who may require extensive investigations, surveillance, or background checks. Gurvich Detective Agency has developed and maintained through the decades an excellent relationship with local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies. We’re recognized around the world for our successful investigative efforts, but our experts are also involved in loss prevention and risk management at marine terminals, warehouses, railroads, airlines, trucking companies, and a host of other businesses.
Why Contract Security ?
The Economics & The Risks
If you think that in-house security is a bargain, then consider the hidden costs– supervision and management time, liability exposure, and the opportunity cost of dealing with security matters when you could be doing something else. These may not be costs that you can easily figure into the bottom line, but you can bet they’re there. By using NOPP, you’ve made your budgeting a lot easier, because in addition to the hidden costs, you won’t have to worry about overtime, personnel replacement, fringe benefits, equipment, uniforms, training and certification. A set hourly rate is something that will make your comptroller a lot more comfortable.
Sure, we know there are some contract security companies that give the industry a bad name, but there is a difference between companies. Very few of our competitors have managed to survive for over eighty-seven years in the intensely competitive security industry. We’ll provide you with a regular team of experienced professionals that you can rely on, with no surprises at the end of the fiscal year!
Local or National - The Home Team Advantage
National companies like to pitch their “national account” service, and it’s true they may have thousands of employees working all over the country. But you’re concerned about what happens right here at your facility. You may be surprised to learn that NOPP has a far larger local staff than any of our national competitors. Why should you have to deal with an assistant branch manager who knows less about security than you do? And why should you have so much trouble keeping a staff and getting good replacements?
Because we’re the home team, all of our senior corporate officers, managers, detectives, and experts are already familiar with your facility and are just minutes away in case of an emergency. We know the local labor situation better than anyone–we’ve got to because this is our home market! Every one of our senior corporate officers, managers, supervisors, detectives, and security officers lives and works in the community, so 100% of your security dollars stay in the local economy. And don’t forget, when you need our dispatch or supervisory staff after hours, you won’t have to call long distance or dial a pager to get assistance.
We realize our customers are concerned about liability issues. Our insurance is underwritten by U.S. based carriers and features high limits with the broadest form coverages available, including first and third party bonds; errors & omissions; assault and battery; care custody and control; lost key; employer's practices; etc. We feature general liability and fleet auto limits of $11M.
If you need security in Louisiana or the Gulf Coast, doesn't it make sense to use the home team advantage? We're the security company with the largest local field and supervisory staff, the most knowledge of the area, and an unsurpassed reputation for integrity.
