History of International Counterintelligence Services, Inc.
Founded in 1967 by Mr. W. David Rabern, CPP, PPS, CFS, CHS. (Certified Protection Professional, Personal Protection Specialist, Certified Fraud Specialist, Certified in Homeland Security). Mr. Rabern is a renowned private investigator, protection professional, security consultant, and expert witness. His original philosophies of investigative method, security consulting, and protection work, combined with his real-life case experiences materialize in the ICS Method of Approach. This Method of Approach is modified from time to time to meet the needs of each investigative assignment; however, its core principles create an environment to provide reliability for ICS clients. Mr. Rabern passed on this Method of Approach to many investigators in his care over the years. Often copied but not successfully duplicated outside of ICS, the ICS Method of Approach lives on in ICS and now, with the introduction of Mr. Rabern's son Michael D. Rabern, QP (Qualified Party Private Investigator) into the executive staff, the Method of Approach will continue to be successfully implemented. Mr. Michael Rabern, once described as a spy-master protégé, has participated in the company for more than 14 years; he is now the president of the company. One principle these Raberns espouse is that ICS does not rely on one expert, but many. ICS maintains an elite team of experienced private investigators, analysts, and consultants worldwide.
Using this teamwork approach, ICS has become one of the largest and most prestigious agencies of its kind. Headquartered in Scottsdale, AZ (United States), ICS maintains a working relationship with thousands of affiliates and associates throughout the world, all of whom comply with the ICS ethical and professional standards. ICS has been involved in more than 110,000 investigations, intelligence, and counterintelligence operations of full or limited assignment since it was founded in 1967.
