Meet Some of Our New TruView Team Members!
Our efforts in 2020 centered in large measure on strengthening TruView against the effects of the pandemic and ensuring that we continued to remain 100% online and responsive to our Clients. We’re proud to say that we did that, and that our commitment to providing the very highest level of service in our industry is as true moving forward into 2021 as it was in years past. That commitment is reflected in our Team.
Last year, we needed to focus more on communicating the dynamic, evolving changes to our service environment (such as periodic updates on court closures, service modifications, and so forth). Now, we’d like to bring you other important information—like introducing you to some of the new members of our Team who joined us in 2020.
Alfred J. Murphy, Vice President – Investigations
Al has a record of success in operations management, investigations, and law enforcement, gained during his 20-year career with the New York City Police Department and more than 14 years in government agencies and the private sector. As the executive leader of TruView’s Investigative Services Division, he directs over 125 TruView investigators and specialists in operations across the United States and internationally. Prior to TruView, for three years, Al served as the New York City Regional Manager for Summit Security Services, Inc., then one of the 10 largest security firms in the United States, where he directed a security force of over 2,000 personnel in service to some of the most prestigious clients in the world. From 2006 to 2017, Al was the Operations Manager for the first-ever Investigative Consultation Unit for the New York City Administration for Children’s Services (ACS), where he directed a staff of 165 former criminal investigators in investigating allegations of child abuse and neglect, citywide.
Al served in the NYPD from 1984 to 2004, retiring at the rank of Lieutenant Commander of the Detective Squad, serving as the commanding offer of a precinct squad, with oversight of criminal investigations, to include those of homicide, assault, sexual abuse, robbery, domestic violence, and burglary cases. He supervised and performed many high-profile investigations during that time. He is an active member of the National Law Enforcement Associates, serving as its President in 2018 and as a member of the Board of Directors since 2019.
Al says, “TruView is not your ordinary investigative company, and that was one of the things that’s drawn me here. Compared to a lot of other investigative firms, we’re a bigger organization, with layered teams and incredible talent. I am comfortable in that environment.” As an NYPD Lieutenant Commander, Al managed over 3,000 criminal investigations a year. “At NYPD, and in all my positions subsequently, I was responsible for large teams with wide-ranging, complex caseloads. Recruiting, training, evaluating, and developing personnel; communicating with teams and supporting investigative operations across multiple regions; helping teams to creatively reach successful case outcomes—that’s important and exciting to me,” he says.
“I’m new to TruView but I’m excited to be a part of the leadership team for a company that has a tremendous growth upside. We’re exploring new technologies and how they fit with timeless, traditional investigative tactics, with human analytics. TruView wants to lead the industry in client responsiveness and client success—that’s the bottom line, and I want to help us do that,” Al says.
Al promises to be personally engaged in client service and support. “In my previous role at Summit Security Services, for example, we served hundreds of clients in New York City, including such clients as ABC Disney, the Federal Reserve Bank, Port Authority of NY & NJ, Columbia University—all very high-profile. My approach to clients now is the same as it was then: I treat every client like they’re a Fortune 500 company or a critical agency. When a client hangs up from a conversation with me, I want them to be glad they spoke with me. I want them to be relieved and confident that everything is being handled. Because it will be.”

My previous experience allowed me to gain invaluable experience in the overall sales and marketing processes for start-up companies, and the opportunity to work for a well-established brand like TruView was something that I could not pass by.” Danny says he was drawn to TruView from the start. “I immediately connected with President Nick Auletta and the Team. I knew right away that I could count on and stand behind TruView’s values, brand, and reputation.”
Danny is a people person and fits in with TruView’s Client-centric culture. “Clients can expect a hands-on approach from first touch to last touch, and a level of service that always makes them know they’re top-of-mind.
