Harper covers gamut of investigations at May meeting
By Bryan Harrison

Tim Harper knows investigations. A former cop, Harper, who is the Northern California Vice President and Branch Manager for the Sacramento office of Frasco Investigative Services, was the guest speaker for the May 11, 2006 meeting of the SCA. His presentation was a thorough overview of the keys to effective investigations.

“All the investigation in the world isn’t going do you any good if it’s not timely,” he stated. “When timely,” he continued, “the investigation doesn’t have to dramatic.”

His discussion included a PowerPoint slide presentation, which he utilized to illustrate a wide array of types of investigations, and “vast resources available for public records”. Making use of the tools and resources is vital in complete and thorough investigations.

“If I had known what I know today (when a cop), I’d have been a far better investigator,” he said.
