Background Investigations for Police Applicants

Phoenix, Arizona - January 31- February 1, 2019

This course is designed for both background investigators, supervisors and human resource policy makers.

Law enforcement strives for professionalism; however, abuses by officers cast a negative light on entire organization. An examination of the past behavior of some involved officers reveals that a pattern of undesirable behavior existed prior to appointment as a police official. This behavior was unknown to the hiring agency due to inadequate or non-existent applicant screening. The integrity and ethical reputation of a police department mandates a thorough background investigation of police applicants. This course offers a systematic approach to background investigations which will assist in making informed hiring decisions.
