  • Unexpected findings on your BI?

    Howdy LEO's!

    I do not have plans to apply for a career in law enforcement, but was curious about the whole background investigation process. I wanted to ask if any of you have ever seen the results from your BI, and if they discovered things which you may have mistakenly forgot to include in your application? Did they find anything that surprised you?

    Yes, I have seen mine; no, there was nothing I did not address when I completed the paperwork.
    Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence!

      +1. I have seen mine, but the PHS packet is so inclusive that if I didn't put everything in there, I would have been DQ'd and never seen it anyway.

        Yea, but your BI had to chisel the report onto stone tablets!



        I saw mine too.................by accident. They normally are in a confidential file around here so the employee doesn't know exactly what the references said.
        Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important

            Never saw it, but it couldn't have been too bad since they hired my ***.

              How can there be surprises when you LIVED what is in the BI package? I know what I've done. I admitted to it. Where is the surprise?

              I don't agree with your opinion, but I respect its straightforwardness in terms of wrongness.

                I was surprised when I saw some of the cool stuff my ex-wife and her family said about me. :-)
                Getting shot hurts! Don't under estimate the power of live ammo. A .22LR can kill you! I personally feel that it's best to avoid being shot by any caliber. Your vest may stop the bullet, but you'll still get a nice bruise or other injury to remember the experience.

                      Thought it was painted on the cave wall.

                        Mine looked like a monkey with a crayon got a hold of it.

                          Whether we've seen our BI's or not, if we had info uncovered we didn't declare, we wouldn't be employed as cops as we would have been disqualified by the BI. That's how it works.

                            Erroneous stuff can sometimes rear its ugly head, necessitating further investigation to clear things up.

                            Years back I did a background on a guy who grew up in Texas. Back then we didn't have live scan for fingerprints and processing them by mail through the FBI and other states took weeks. The applicant claimed to have no criminal arrest record but when I sent Texas DPS an NLETS message asking for a criminal history check, they told me a subject with the same first, middle and last names, dob, height, weight, hair and eye color had an extensive criminal history. Only upon further checking did I discover that the info they sent me was on a subject of a completely different race. Nonetheless, this held up the background for a couple of weeks while things got straightened out.

                            In another instance. a neighbor accused an applicant with my agency of insurance fraud. They said he reported his car as being stolen to the police and collected on his insurance when the car was never really stolen. As proof, he pointed out the "stolen" car parked in front of the applicant's house. A check of the stolen vehicle system revealed that the car had been reported as both stolen and recovered.

                            An interview with the applicant determined that when he purchased the car two years earlier, he removed the stock seats, wheels, stereo and other items and replaced them with high end products. The stock items were placed in storage. Whoever stole the car stripped it and when recovered, the insurance company declared it to be a salvaged vehicle. The applicant approached the insurance company and purchased the chassis back from them as a salvage vehicle. He then rebuilt it using most of the stock equipment he had in storage for the past two years and purchasing other items out of his own pocket. His insurance company substantiated his story and he had properly dated receipts for everything Checking that out probably added an extra few weeks to the background.

                              At the time of my background I lived on a one-way street and one of my neighbors told my BI that I drove up the wrong way once. He told me not to do that in my take home car.
