Ventura County Private Investigator

Command Presence Security and Investigative Services are committed to providing the best overall outcome in the process of fact gathering. Most of the issues dealt with in private investigations are sensitive by nature; privacy is paramount.  Our discrete methodologies stem from years of law enforcement, special operations military experience, education, and training. You can count on us to be professional, timely, efficient and make sure you’re satisfied every step of the way.


Dishonesty in relationships can be one of the most traumatic experiences.  Unfortunately, California as a "no-fault" state will not align legal responsibility to the wrong party.  However, you can protect yourself by being informed, so the ultimate decision to gain the services of a private investigator.  The evolution of technology has allowed for cheaters to cloak their behaviors; however, surveillance with evidence-based media will solidify negative findings.

Financial Fraud

Are you a victim of financial deceit?  Would you even know if you were?  Are the assets of your business or personal finances being compromised?  Types of fraud include, (1) embezzlement, (2) internal theft, (3) payoffs/kickbacks, (4) skimming off of revenue.  At Command Presence we provide you with the answers needed to take action and move forward.

Accident Investigation

The primary objective of any insurance company is to limit financial responsibility when it comes to paying claims. You can be sure the insurance company will have all the "experts" in their corner when it comes time for your deposition. Their objective is to collect premiums from millions of subscribers and pay out as little as possible on vehicle accidents and injury claims. Often the police do not follow up on eyewitnesses who have left contact information behind after seeing a crash. Our investigators will interview all witnesses, gather information related to the mode of the accident such as removing the vehicle's onboard computer system to have it analyzed.  We have access to specialists that have had extensive training from the California Highway Patrol in accident reconstruction.

Asset Location

Are you worried that your spouse, business partner, or other professional cohort is hiding money from you? What about the business aspect of marriage and the potential for divorce as the national average currently is 63%? Part of the process with infidelity cases especially in California has to do with one party hiding assets in the event of a divorce. The stakes increase even further when there are children involved. The likelihood of child support as a reasonable part of a court parenting plan is a given in the dissolution process. At Command Presence we recognize the time and patience it takes to deal with the art of asset deception. We have trusted resources available both nationwide as well as overseas to assist in tracking what is going on with asset movements.

Background Investigation

In today's world, it is critical you are informed of exactly whom you are associating with either in a personal or business relationship. Command Presence will ensure the background of individuals you may put in your life are credible by uncovering facts to which you may not be aware. Our background checks are comprehensive and suitable for both personal and employment connections. On the own side, would you not want to know your potential new boyfriend has had numerous relationships in the past where he's gained a financial advantage as a result of your "kind-hearted" nature?  Might it be important to know he has a past conviction for rape or abuse? Let us find the facts and present them to you at a reasonable cost.

Missing Persons

Are you trying to locate someone? We can work with law enforcement collaterally or independently. Law enforcement organizations may not have the staff available to find your loved one. Our agency can also assist in the location of past friends and even military cohorts you may have served with at the time or another. When there is money owed, we can locate the debtor; although enforcing the debt may be another task.

Youth Monitoring

Our services can ensure the safety of your children is at the forefront. As a result of California legislation such as Proposition 57 dangerous felons are paroled at a faster rate for sex crimes under reclassification to "non-violent" crimes. As part of the revision, some crimes related to sexual assaults and minors are no longer considered a serious offense. Moreover, felons once convicted of sex crimes listed under Prop 57 are applying for parole and released from California state prisons at an alarming rate.  These sex offenders are being put back into the community leaving the constituents to deal with them. Command Presence dedication to protecting those who cannot defend themselves. Our services will ensure that your children are where they are supposed to be and to keep the right company including looking into friends they may be associating with potential criminal backgrounds or gang affiliations.
