Several law enforcement agencies in Nevada, Washington, and Illinois trust us with their pre-employment testing. Peace officer positions require a specialized background test and interview process to determine suitability for positions of trust within our communities.

Law enforcement testing typically explores application integrity, drug history, violence issues, and serious undiscovered crimes.
We administer background verification polygraph screening to the armored security industry. Often, unscrupulous individuals will obtain positions within these companies to set up robberies of their clients.
