Andy Davis

Specializing as a private investigator and consultant, Andy Davis currently employs the same powerful investigative techniques and surveillance tactics that helped him to earn the rank of Major and Division Commander of the Raleigh Police Department.

As an executive-level law enforcement officer and a graduate of the FBI National Academy, Andy gained valuable experience in conducting surveillance operations and criminal and internal investigations. Overseeing homicide investigations, supervising the Gang, Drugs, and Vice Units of the RPD, and coordinating multiple agency projects with the ATF, DEA, and NCSBI has given Andy superior knowledge to conduct involved surveillance and investigations.

This experience, partnered with his proven ability to thrive under pressure, has allowed Andy to specialize in private investigations, surveillance operations, workers compensation and injury cases, HR investigations, and personnel consulting. Andy, having successfully coordinated with the Secret Service to protect three U.S. Presidents and numerous other dignitaries, also utilizes his expertise to provide security services for business executives and political figures.

Andy is a member of numerous professional development programs and associations, including the International Association of Chiefs of Police, Police Executive Research Forum and FBI National Academy Associates.
