Public safety professionals tasked with conducting background investigations of would-be employees play a vital if often overlooked, role in the future of an agency.  The department is only as good as its people and, therefore, the task of preventing unqualified applicants from falling through the cracks of the hiring process is as important as any aspect of a public safety agency’s operations.

This training will focus on creating agency-specific policies and procedures to ensure that all applicants are investigated in a manner that is thorough and lawful.

  • Identifying best practices for background investigations in light of possible statutory limitations
  • Recognizing and minimizing liability in the hiring process
  • Creating consistent policies and procedures for background investigations
  • Recognizing the long-term liability associated with hiring unqualified applicants
  • Meeting the challenge of conducting thorough background investigations in the face of staff shortages
