  • Exactly what do they look for in background checks?

    Just wondering. I know the obvious is probably arrest records and see if they actually completed school and what not but what else? I have a notice of examination for a test I passed and was trying to figure out how exactly do you prove that or how its determined? Its for a peace officer/special patrolman job oppurtunity.

    A Background Investigations seeks to do two things, basically. One: To determine whether or not an applicant meets the minimum hiring requirements for the agency. Two: To determine whether or not a given applicant meets a department's criteria for disqualification. It is the second function of the investigation which is involves far more detail, and entails a thorough and comprehensive investigation. The investigator will look at arrest records, both criminal and traffic. He/she will look at any juvenile adjudications, and the facts and circumstances surrounding any arrests/charges. Keep in mind that records which have been expunged, sealed, or set aside are routinely accessed by Background Investigators. The investigator will interview, or otherwise contact any references you may provide, and more often than not, he/she will speak to people who you have not listed as references. The investigation will take a look at high school and college records and transcripts. It will look into your credit, and the manner in which you handle your debts and obligations. As you can tell, and as I advised you at the outset, it's a pretty comprehensive investigation. It has to be.
