What ​we do

We help protect organizations, their stakeholders, and their leaders from the inherent risk of employee misconduct.


Why we do this?


Organizations are too easily susceptible to becoming victims of employee misconduct. Employee theft is 15 times more likely to occur than someone from outside the organization stealing. It happens across the country every day; in organizations that never thought that someone they worked with would engage in that type of behavior. Recent studies show the annual loss in the billions of dollars. "Trust but verify" can be vitally important and it is an excellent way to build a positive reputation with your organization's stakeholders, including your own employees. 


Why name the company “65th North Group”?


Named in honor of the founder’s grandparents, 65th North Group, LLC provides essential solutions for local governments, companies, and not-for-profits in the area of occupational fraud prevention and detection. These services provide reasonable assurance to stakeholders of the effectiveness of the organization’s anti-fraud workplace environment.


The founder’s grandfather worked very hard every day to take care of his family. His grandparents lived in their home on 65th Avenue North for several decades. Without warning and what seemed like out of the blue, his grandparent’s home was taken through eminent domain so the city in which they lived could install a city bus stop. While perfectly legal, it highlights how quickly and easily something you worked so hard for and for so many years is taken away just like that – catching you completely by surprise and leaving devastating consequences.
