Peregrine Falcon

Yesterday a large bird which I first thought was a hawk was seen inside our factory. We were able to isolate it and get it outside at 5:30pm. It was seen again in the building at about 8:30pm and didn't get chased back outside til about 6:15 this morning. I think it may have been a falcon. My question is, when I called Critter Detectives, they stated that there is nothing they can do to a bird of prey, even if it is injured. What are my options? I had to shut down production lines until we could get it out of the building. Who can handle something like this?
