For some time now, regulations have caused a stir among companies by giving them criminal responsibility.
The Criminal Code sets out a list of crimes that companies may incur, for the benefit of these, through any of its members (partners, administrators, employees or collaborators).
Given the risk of crime, and as if it were “a shield”, the same regulations set forth the drafting of a Criminal Regulatory Compliance Program and the creation of the figure of the Compliance Officer.
The basic idea is that the Criminal Regulatory Compliance Program must collect the risks of committing any illegal criminal conduct and the measures to avoid or mitigate it, at the same time as creating a Code of Good Conduct.
And who is the person in charge or in charge of vehicular, create and adapt this program? The answer is clear, the Compliance Officer.
This figure, endowed with resources and decision-making independence, must also investigate, for the good of the company, all indications of criminal behavior that may arise within the company.
At this point, we remember that the figure of the Private Detective is the only one authorized, according to the Private Security Law, to conduct business investigations.
And it is in this way that both professionals, the Compliance Officer and the Detective, who must work together to solve the problems that may arise in the company and thus avoid infractions that may cause possible fines, disqualifications or judicial interventions are linked.
