Simone L. Mitchell –
Mr. Mitchell has studied Administration of Justice and Sociology for a period of one year at Community College of Philadelphia. He then furthered his studies for three more additional years at Pennsylvania State University; and continued his education in Criminal Justice and Psychology.
It should be noted that Simone has held a license as a Private Investigator in the following States: Pennsylvania, New Jersey, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama and Florida.
Mr. Mitchell has been in the Security and Investigative industry since 1987, and throughout those years, Simone has worked for various Security & Investigative companies. Mr. Mitchell observed how clients did not receive the dedication from the contracted firms. Due to the lack of quality customer service and time management that were given to clients from the other companies, Mr. Mitchell decided in May of 2000 to provide Security & Investigative services to businesses and property owners/managers, who were not receiving the services that were expected. Also, he wanted to supersede the customers' expectations. Due to unforeseen circumstances in October 2007, Mr. Mitchell decided to focus in other avenues; but realized that the Private Sector was still in need of great service. Mr. Mitchell then elected to return to the Private Sector in June 2012.
Working as a Private Investigator, Mr. Mitchell was able to save an insurance company a payout over $697,000.00. He saved a fortune 500 company from numerous sexual harassment lawsuits and busted criminal activity within the work place.
At a retail store located in the Metro Atlanta area on North Druid Hills Road, Simone started up and put together a successful Loss Prevention team in place from scratch.
