  • Background Investigators

    If your applicant had a DVPO against a former partner, would you contact that former partner during the course of a BI to inquire about the applicant's character, or would you assume that the former partner would intentionally portray the applicant negatively and opt not to contact?

    BIs are incredibly good at weighing opinions of people they contact......they might contact the person in question but it really is only a piece of the much larger puzzle

        Don't worry about it; like my colleague noted above BI's know when a contact has malice against an applicant.

            Not only will the BI check with the former partner, but the DVPO will be gone into in it's entirety. Understand, that I'm not assessing blame here, merely advising you that any indications of DV are taken very seriously by LE agencies. The fact that a DVPO was issued is ample basis for a very comprehensive inquiry into the totality of circumstances surrounding it. I certainly don't expect you to share the circumstances surrounding the order on a public forum. You need to be aware though, that depending on the circumstances surrounding the issuance of the order, your application could be negatively impacted.

              DVPO=Domestic Violence Protection Order, correct? If so, how can the officer even have a firearm?

                If he was the one who was the protected person.

                  Yes, sorry, to clarify - in this instance, the applicant is the one being protected. Apologies for the confusion.

                    If my applicant has a DVPO against them, I wouldn't bother doing a background.

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

                      I always think the negative. I need to stop that.

                        That certainly clarifies the situation considerably. That said, agencies are very concerned about DV situations, regardless of who the victim is. Be prepared to fully disclose and explain all the circumstances surrounding the issuance of the DVPO.

                          I would actually look into it, get the applicants story, all associated paperwork including the application for the order.

                          If could be that the person was actually a victim and is doing their best to keep the offender away through all legal possibilites.

                          There are a lot of psycho men/women/ex's/etc................

                          Everyone deserves an opportunity to defend themselves, if it's not on the automatic DQ list, then do the investigation.

                            I have absolutely no problem with full disclosure on my part. What I was wondering is whether or not HIS opinion about ME will be weighed, as he is a manipulative liar, and whether or not the BI will want to contact him at all being that he is guaranteed to absolutely despise me and wish me ill will.

                              Of course HIS opinion will be weighed......................along with many other people's opinions. The background investigator normally has a pretty good BS meter as well as being a seasoned investigator.

                              To begin with, do you actually think that an investigator only wants to talk to those people who will paint you with rose colored glasses. AH no!

                              We want to see all your warts BEFORE we hire you.

                              I will almost guarantee you that a good background investigator will talk to between 50-100 people about you before they finish their investigation. Most of them you will not have named on your BI forms
