It has been proven outsourcing saves our clients money. Most agencies are unaware of the true costs of keeping investigations in house. In addition, clients can avoid travel costs while still maintaining important face to face interaction for out of state applicants.
We know how important it is to have face to face interaction when conducting a background investigation. Our nationwide field team gives clients the ability to recruit anywhere in the U.S. while still maintaining in person contact.
Our proprietary case management system was designed to meet the specific needs of the public safety community. Our solution is 100% paperless, and allows clients to view the live status of a case 24/7.
We understand the needs of each client are unique. Therefore, we provide options ranging from 100% outsourcing to handling only the out of state leads.
IDS has been trusted by the public safety community for 10 years. Our elite investigative team is highly experienced in conducting background investigations. Background investigations are what we do, keep your officers on the street and let them do what they do best.
Industry Specific Services
IDS investigative staff will contact all law enforcement agencies to which the applicant has applied, but was not selected, to ascertain the reason the agency did not select the applicant for employment. Follow up will not be made with departments in which the applicant is currently in process.
Our reports give an in-depth, comprehensive picture of an individuals on line presence. IDS provides our clients with relevant and actionable social media data to support the hiring decision making process. With customizable reporting options, we include information and screen shots from a wide variety of on line sources. Reports are FCRA and EEOC compliant.
IDS personnel will ensure the PREA Questionnaire for Prior Institutional Employers form is completed for all prior institutional entities in which the applicant lists on his paperwork. Completed forms will be uploaded into the system for inclusion with the final report. Any derogatory information will be flagged for notification.
IDS investigative staff will search the national registry of certificate or license actions related to officer misconduct. If any misconduct is found, IDS will verify with the contributing authority.
IDS will provide electronic scheduling for applicants to complete preemployment tuberculosis screening. If test results are positive, a second test that includes a baseline chest x-ray will be scheduled. IDS will provide secure storage of records of test results. Applicant’s results should return within a 72 hours turn-around time.
IDS will provide electronic scheduling for employee candidates to undergo required preemployment physical exams. IDS will store physical exam results and track status. The physical exam will include measures and reviews of: visual acuity, hearing acuity, heart rate, blood pressure, range of motion and flexibility (need for accommodations/ ability to perform the functions of the job), and TB skin test.
