Meet Peggy Faulkner


Forensic Interviewing: Provider of child forensic interviews in child abuse/witness cases while employed by the Salt Lake County Sheriff’s Office and the Unified Police Department. Worked with other investigative professionals, child advocacy centers and district attorneys to conduct interviews with

victims of child abuse or witnesses of traumatic events. Strictly followed nationally recognized forensic guidelines, and conducted interviews that were neutral, non-leading and age appropriate. Interviews and testimony have withstood court scrutiny, and demonstrated superior understanding in challenging and complex case prosecution.

Work Experience: Employed as a Law Enforcement Officer for 25 years. Held a variety of positions during this time to include Patrol Officer, DARE Officer, Public Information Officer, and ten year experience as Detective in the Special Victims Unit and School Resource Officer. As Special Victims Unit and School Resource Officer, interviewed hundreds of children using the Children’s Justice Center Forensic Interview Guidelines. While in this job was asked by other specialty units within my agency as well as other agencies, such as the FBI (Federal Bureau Investigation) and out of state police agencies to interview children who had witnessed homicides and other traumatic events. In these jobs I also interviewed suspects, wrote and served search warrants and in many cases have followed through to completion, which was prosecution and many times testifying in court.

Meet Brent Robbins


Brent Robbins was an FBI Special Agent Accountant and Special Agent Supervisor in Los Angeles, CA from 1976 to 2004, and Salt Lake City from 2004 thru 2005. During this time, he was assigned to work numerous investigations where he developed an expertise in investigating drug money laundering and multi-million dollar white collar crimes which were successfully prosecuted. Many of these cases also involved criminal and civil asset forfeiture which required forensic accounting. 

During 2007, following his retirement from the FBI, ASIS International certified Mr. Robbins as a Certified Protection Professional (CPP), which includes expertise in the areas of principles of management accounting, control and audits, and best business practices, which is invaluable in conducting fraud investigations.

As the chief investigator, he oversaw all internal and external criminal investigative matters and maintained liaison with local, state and federal law enforcement agencies. During 2008, after two and one half years with Zions Bancorp, he accepted an independent contractor position with Professional Risk Management Services to conduct financial/asset investigations for the DEA in Salt Lake City. Eight months later, Mr. Robbins accepted a contractor position with the FBI. His duties included conducting complex analyses of financial records, scheduling bank statements and tracing illgotten gains to assets which were forfeitable to the U.S. Government.
