USIS can leverage its background investigative experience and law enforcement-experienced staff into the First Responder market to offer an outsourcing option that can save enforcement and emergency agencies time and money.
Falls Church, VA (Vocus) February 1, 2008
USIS, a national leader in employment screening, drug testing, and the largest provider of security investigations to the U.S. government, is launching a new service within its Special Investigations Unit (SIU) that is specifically designed to conduct background investigations on police officer recruits or EMTs associated with law enforcement agencies, fire departments and emergency medical services.
The new First Responder product line offers four levels of investigations that range from pre-employment screening to a full ten year background investigation. The four packages provide an attractive menu for agencies to select what level of investigation works best for their department and their budget.
SIU Senior Manager Jill Schweitzer says USIS is well-equipped to offer such a service. "USIS can leverage its background investigative experience and law enforcement-experienced staff into the First Responder market to offer an outsourcing option that can save enforcement and emergency agencies time and money."
USIS capitalizes on its experience and resources to create thorough and quality investigations that meet or exceed state regulations for the First Responder market. With its more than 3,000 trained and security-cleared field investigators nationwide, USIS can conduct comprehensive in-person interviews, providing efficient and effective investigations. Because of this extensive reach, SIU has the capacity to conduct out-of-state interviews at no additional cost to its client's departments.
USIS currently conducts background investigations for small, mid-sized and large agencies to include U.S. Customs and Border Protection, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, New Mexico State Police and the Albuquerque Police Department.
