Security Industry Background Checks

Security and law enforcement personnel often have extraordinary power over the safety of individuals and corporate assets, including the responsibility of bearing weapons. The Security/Protection Industries Screening Solutions help to insure that individuals of questionable background or intent are detected and removed from the pool of potential hires, with two levels of search depth available. We recommend Level 2 for positions where exceptional trust is required or Homeland Security issues are relevant.

Security Industry Screening — Level 1
