POST-Compliant Background Investigations
If your department or agency is hiring a new deputy, officer, chief, command staff, or other public safety employee, consider contracting with ProFirst Training and Consulting to conduct your POST-compliant background investigations. We conduct background investigations nationwide.
Our experienced staff of retired police background investigators conduct meticulous pre-employment investigations into each dimension of an applicant's life.
Because we have dedicated investigators who are assigned to your applicant, most backgrounds are completed within two weeks and at a cost savings to the department. Contracting your background investigations also affords your department the benefit to allocate your staff to other important assignments while also reducing potential liability associated with ADA, FCRA, and Title VII claims.
ProFirst Training and Consulting will provide your department with all the necessary paperwork, forms, and resources to integrate our background investigation services into your hiring procedure. This is a cost-saving measure for any department, as most background investigations take up to 50 hours to complete.
