Background checks and other pre-employment screening services are an integral part of the hiring process. By properly screening a candidate through a comprehensive background check process, employers increase the chances of preventing negligent hiring lawsuits and provide a safer work environment for their employees.
Establishing whether an employee has a criminal record is crucial in assessing the risk of bringing that person into your organization. While not every crime would automatically prevent an applicant from being hired, having that knowledge allows you to make a fair and competent decision.
Our private investigators perform thorough criminal history searches in all U.S States and also in over 100 countries.
When we say thorough, we mean we do not just simply plug a name into some database and present those results in our final report. Many states, counties, and townships do not participate in online database sharing. Instead, each has to be individually searched and queried. We identify your candidate’s address history and individually search all counties and townships to which they were found to have a residence or association.
Job candidates are going to say whatever they can to get the desired job. There are times when applicants exclude certain jobs or vital information from their resume hoping that the employer will not find it out.
Our skilled private investigators will research each individual and obtain a detailed work history based on private and public databases. We will then compare those finding with what the candidate listed on the resume that they provided. Those findings will be reported to you.
In addition, our private investigators will contact each previous employer and ask all the relevant questions that will allow you to make the correct hiring decisions.
Our skilled private investigators will confirm all your candidates education history and also perform a degree verification.

A pre-employment background check typically ranges between $150 to $300 to complete. The range is based on individual states and the amount they charge for completing an accurate criminal history search. In addition, certain individuals that we find have resided in multiple states would require individual searches by state. This is an example of how thorough a private investigator is when conducting a background check.
In addition to the typical fees, we offer specialized background investigations. These types of background check investigations may involve surveillance, field investigations, and/or financial information and would require additional costs, which may be hourly or fixed.
Background checks have a typical turn around time of 2-7 days. Days to completion vary by the state, the number states queried and if any specialized information is requested.
