Trained, Professional Staff

Trained, Professional Staff

We recruit, train and place people who can meet our requirements–and exceed your expectations.


Pre-Hire Screening

Each candidate undergoes a thorough background check, as well as state and national criminal background reviews. Our pre-hire and ongoing, random drug screening covers 10 panels, testing for illegal drug use.


Rigorous Training

Each new hire must successfully complete pre-assignment classroom training. This program meets, and generally exceeds, all jurisdictional requirements. Topics include: protecting personnel and property; projecting a professional image and performance; taking ownership of every assignment; report writing; dealing with difficult challenges; and conveying client loyalty.
