About Us

Owner and investigator, Chris Tripi, has a passion for conducting investigations, research, performing root cause analysis, and ameliorating all forms of criminal activity within the scope of his experience, skills and education. Chris was privileged to work 6 years as an investigator and President of Brea-2 Corporation - Private Investigations under the tutelage of 20 year veteran Detective Philip J. Tripi of the New York City Police Department. During that time, Chris was personally involved with producing detailed reports for corporate clients, locating, interviewing/interrogating witnesses and suspects and recording their statements to be submitted for trial. Additionally, Chris was responsible for collecting evidence, acquiring scene photos, planning and conducting undercover operations. Furthermore, Chris managed and organized surveillance operations using state of the art technology. His building relationships and conferring with local, city, state, and federal law enforcement officials plays a vital function in solving fraud, homicide and grand larceny investigations.
