internationally providing verified criminal
and civil records retrieval from county,

With 360° risk management and risk safety at top of mind we dedicate account managers, trainers, remote desktop support personnel, intelligence analysts and investigators to make sure that every aspect of your employment screening process is thorough and efficient. When we are involved on a day-to-day basis we can react quickly and effectively to address other employment related concerns such as employee misconduct, misuse of electronic devices, and hostile termination security issues.

Our easy to use, web-based portal allows you to securely enter search requests
24/7 through an itemized order menu. We are able to pre-configure unique
user ID’s so that no menu appears but the system knows what searches to
run. This is particularly useful if you run the same searches every time based
on a particular work role. (i.e. laborer, manager, senior manager, c-suite) and do not want the user to be able to modify which searches are being run.

We leverage our tech-heavy environment and many years of experience in law enforcement, private investigations, and intelligence analysis to help clients gain the information and perspectives they need to make sound hiring decisions and stay in compliance with regulations such as The Fair Credit Reporting Act, 15 U.S.C. § 1681.

Social media and online investigative reports are researched and prepared by our in-house Social Media Intelligence Experts.
