  • Background investigation?

    Good afternoon everyone,
    I have a question regarding Department background investigation. I am currently in the process with a department. I am at the last step in the hiring process, Which for them is the Background investigation. They told me the entire background investigation will take 1-2 weeks. Isn't this a very short time frame for a law enforcement agency? What Investigation is going to be done within 2 weeks? Any thoughts?

    The kind they find to be sufficient? If it is an assigned priority task instead of a do bits and pieces as you can, you can get a lot done in two weeks. Education, military service, credit, driving and criminal history can all be knocked out pretty quickly. Interviews can slow down the process, especially if someone is on vacation but, like I said, a BI dedicated to the task can make a lot of headway. What do you see as being time consuming?

      I just assumed background checks are very intense. And they take a long time. I've heard it takes months before they're done.

    My agency was dangerously short staffed. They did waht they called 'waiver hire' which meant they did a cursory background check on people, hired them and then, supposedly completed a more thorough one later. This may be the case with the agency you're applying to.

      Can I ask what state you’re in? That sounds kind of sketchy. I imagine they’ve let go more than one person they hired like that.
