"The best

predictor

of future

behavior is 

past behavior"

WHY

A complete background investigation is considered the very heart of the pre-employment selection process, and a thorough, unbiased investigation that conforms to all applicable state and federal regulations is imperative. 

When spending thousand of dollars to advertise, recruit and hire public safety personnel, it's important to conduct thorough background investigations to avoid future incidents or personnel problems and minimize the risk of negative publicity.

BENEFITS

Do you truly know as much as possible about the candidate you're putting in uniform?

 

Community members expect all public safety professionals to have the highest degree of trust, professionalism, and responsibility, but a basic background check may not provide all of the information. A CAI background can provide you with all the information you need to make an informed decision.  If your candidate has had problems in the past, there is a high probability that they will have problems in the future.

 

By conducting an in depth background, your agency will gain a more holistic picture of a candidate's background, and will learn about any demonstrated history of poor life decisions that could negatively impact you and your community in the future.
