Background checks can be part of a program to stop these types of incidents from ever occurring again.
Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) May 10, 2010
In the wake of the disturbing details being released about the tragedy at the University of Virginia, the issue of background checks for student-athletes is becoming an important topic for parents, schools and other students. Stuart Drobny, one of the nations preeminent private investigators, is available to discuss how best to conduct necessary investigations while protecting a young adult’s privacy.
“What happened at the University of Virginia is a tragedy and while there is no way to know if it could have been avoided, the fact that the school and other students weren’t made aware of a past arrest that could have required a suspension and counseling should raise a warning flag to everyone,” said Mr. Drobny today. “Background checks can be part of a program to stop these types of incidents from ever occurring again.”
Mr. Drobny’s firm, Stumar Investigations, has performed thousands of sensitive background investigations, including for professional sporting teams, major corporations and schools. His experience gives him a deep understanding of:
- how it is possible to perform background checks on student-athletes;
- what needs to be done to protect a young person’s privacy and still get the needed information; and
- what it means for parents and colleges.
“While certainly not every mistake a young adult makes is anything more than that – a mistake -- it is important for colleges and universities to protect themselves and students by knowing the facts behind any incident and, if needed, taking appropriate steps,” continued Mr. Drobny.
Mr. Drobny has been a pioneer in the full gamut of investigative matters for more than 25 years and serves clients nationally. With the nation’s largest staff of licensed investigators working for a privately-owned firm, his client roster reads like a “Who’s Who” of Fortune 500 companies. The firm is known for its background investigations, insurance claims investigations, anti-counterfeiting and intellectual property fraud, litigation support, civil litigation, family law investigations, and witness location and interviews.
Mr. Drobny is a graduate of Philadelphia’s Temple University and in addition to IACC, is also active in INTELLENET, the National Association of Investigative Specialists (NAIS), the National Council of Investigation & Security Services (NCISS), the Pennsylvania Association of Licensed Investigators (PALI), and the New Jersey Licensed Private Investigators Association (NJLPIA), among others.
