About Franklin InvestigationsFranklin Investigations is a private investigation firm in Fargo, North Dakota dedicated to supporting individuals and businesses with an affordable means to the information and investigation services they require. 

Our founder, Jon Hennings, has the confidence and knowledge to help you with your investigative needs after working in several Loss Prevention roles along with his Criminal Justice education. 

After obtaining my Criminal Justice Degree from NDSU, Jon worked as a Loss Prevention Officer at Cash Wise Corporate (Now Coborn’s) and Sportsman’s Warehouse, learning the value of investigation practices, methods, and policies. From there, he learned valuable skills and top notch technology to detect losses in many areas.

In 2007 Jon completed the necessary steps to receive his North Dakota Private Investigations license and began brainstorming about offering investigative services as a small business owner. With the help of a great friend, the investigative firm Franklin Investigations was created. It’s our goal to help individuals and businesses with their various private investigative needs.
