Commercial Narcotic Searches
Our professional, non-intrusive searches provide a deterrent to those considering bringing drugs into a workplace, school setting, or any other venue. Located in Central Minnesota, we serve the entire state.
The best and most effective search program is one where we perform random, periodic visits to your company, organization or school. Typically, random search dog inspections create a strong deterrent against anyone selling, storing, or using narcotics in an organization or facility.
Drug abusers cost American employers more that $100 billion dollars annually in lost productivity, sick time, employee theft, workplace accidents, workplace violence, workers compensation, lawsuits and insurance claims.
Drug prevention reduces business risk. Business owners enforcing a drug free work atmosphere will increase their profitability while reducing risk. According to OSHA, 67% of all work-related accidents are the direct result of substance abuse. The DEA reports that 70% of drug users are employed and 35% of all cocaine users sell drugs to co-workers to support their own habit.
According to the National Clearing house for Alcohol and Drug Information, drug-using employees are four times more likely to file a workers' compensation claim.
Regardless of which tests are done, drug testing is always a positive return on investment. Random drug testing has been proven to be a powerful deterrent to substance abuse in the workplace for existing employees and the use of drug detection dogs is the least invasive and non-discriminatory method of testing for illegal substances.
A recent analysis using data from three large studies in Australia and New Zealand found that adolescents who used marijuana regularly were significantly less likely than their non-using peers to finish high school or obtain a degree. They also had a much higher chance of later developing dependence, using other drugs, and attempting suicide. Several studies have also linked heavy marijuana use to lower income, greater welfare dependence, unemployment, criminal behavior, and lower life satisfaction.
School inspections help deter drug use among students.
How True North Investigations can Assist:
Our goal is to help employers with drug policies to enforce them and take the appropriate actions if they are being violated. A major benefit of hiring a private detection service is that we are discreet & everything is confidential. We do not share any information that we gather while performing the service to anyone other than the company owner or manager.
We can do searches during business hours or after hours, and do everything in our power to minimize any impact to the company’s daily operation. True North Investigators can search any size of office or building. We do not search the interiors of employee’s personal vehicles, but we can search company property and fleet vehicles owned by the company.
