Technical Sweep Countermeasures (TSCM). We have many Clients who call for a TSCM service to ensure their home or office are safe to discuss private conversations.

Bob* and Meredith* had only been married for a year. While they were dating, Bob had been very sweet and attentive toward Meredith. But after their marriage, Bob was becoming more overbearing. He not only controlled all of their finances with an iron fist, but whenever Meredith came home late from work, he would question where she had been and who she had been with.
