About Us

100% independent and Australian-owned

An independent and privately-owned business since 2008, AISM is an Australian leader in legal investigation, security and technology services with a single-minded focus on quality, integrity and delivering results.

Having identified an opportunity to offer world class security and investigations to the Australian market, Peter Mercouris founded Australian Investigation Security Management (AISM) following extensive travel and meticulous research into best international practices in the industry. The business has since grown into a national service provider with a team approaching 100 staff.

Peter’s passion and expertise in the investigations and security sector came from a successful 18-year career with NSW Police Force where he attained the rank of Detective Sergeant, helped combat organised crime and was recognised as a tactical, strategic, instructional and operational specialist.

Unlike many operators, AISM is a 100% independent and private business. We employ all our own staff, never subcontract security or investigation work to third parties, and we’ve had no mergers, selloffs or referral partnerships.

For you, this means we have total control and accountability for delivering results and for the quality of our work. If there’s a problem, the buck stops with us.

“The difference with us is that we do not subcontract, therefore if you do business with us, you know who you’re actually doing business with.”
