  • Any Background Investigators?

    so im currently in the background process for a local department. can someone tell me what the report that the BI writes looks like and how its structured? obviously, i know what they put in like employment history, credit score, criminal activities, etc. but is it in like an essay format or is it like a form they fill out and add notes? and if its an essay format, can someone give me an example of how one might read? im just curious as to what its like... thanks!

    It all depends. If the department is painstakingly thorough, their report will follow the painstaking guidelines found here -

    You fill find excerpts of exemplar reports towards the end.

    OTOH, if it's a tiny, laid back department, the Sergeant might come back, simply tell the Chief, "He's a good boy," and that's it.

    Going too far is half the pleasure of not getting anywhere

    As your BI will read this, you’re failing basic English grammar..
    Now go home and get your shine box!

      I already covered that with him, and he has made zero improvements in that area.

      IF he somehow got hired, he would almost definitely be the one responsible for his classmates doing a LOT of extra pushups on his behalf...

    Or it might be a simple computer generated narrative

    It just depends

      It varies wildly from department to department.

        One wonders why you need to know the specific format of a background investigation report. That’s an awfully specific thing to be curious about.

          We don't have a "form." We pull criminal and driver's histories, call references, past employers, social media etc. And since you have to be certified to work with us (no pre-hires) we'll get your POST records and call someone we know that knows you and all your dirty secrets.

            After 30 yrs of playing I had contacts in every area of the state. I knew someone or knew someone who knew someone in just about every agency in the state.

            Now most of those people are long retired.......
