Progressive Investigations Research and Consulting Corporation (PIRCC) was established in Tampa Florida in June of 1994 by Brad Sparkman of Plant City. It originally operated as Brad Sparkman Corporation, on October of 2013 the Private Investigation Agency changed the operation location and the corporate name. The agency handles criminal and civil cases in the State of Florida and throughout the United States since its inception. The name was changed to Progressive Investigations Research and Consulting Corporation and it was to more accurately reflect the products and services PIRCC offers private individuals, corporations and attorneys. The agency initially started out handling insurance fraud cases for the top 6 carriers in the State of Florida which included State Farm, Allstate, Nationwide, Geico, Progressive, and Farm Bureau. Additionally, PIRCC handled the corporate accounts for CSX railroads, Florida East coast railroads, Publix Corporation, Dillard’s and Outback. During the recession of 2007 and with the influx of agencies and investigators, PIRCC began to diversify the line products and included criminal investigations and Risk Management products.

In April of 2015 the Corporation was transferred to Monica Duperon Rodriguez. Rodriguez has over 14 years of law enforcement experience working complex cases, such as Human Trafficking/Sex Trafficking cases, Gang Specialist, SWAT Hostage Negotiator, Undercover Narcotics Detective, and Field Training Officer just to name a few. In 2014 Progressive Investigations Research and Consulting Corporation was responsible for locating and returning 7 missing persons, 2 of which were national cases originating from other states. Also of the 7 cases 2 were classified as sex trafficking cases. Prior to law enforcement, Rodriguez worked for an Israeli prepress vendor. She started as a temporary employee in her early 20s and quickly worked her way to Regional Planner in Logistics. She worked her way into the Planning Leader managing five planner located in Canada and in several states in the US. Rodriguez later transitioned into a Corporate Software Instructor requiring a high level of customer service and travel throughout the US and Canada. Rodriguez also managed the Central and South America division due to her English and Spanish language skills. In addition to investigative services, Rodriguez also currently serves as a Personal Protection Agent to High Profile, High Income individuals with high threat level. Rodriguez’s highly demanding, flexible, approachable and discreet professional background along with her corporate experience makes Rodriguez uniquely equipped to handle almost any type of situation in the most professional and sensitive manner.
