Employee and Volunteer Screening
Employment and Volunteer Screening — Embellished resumes` and falsified job applications are commonplace.   
To protect our clients organizations from falling  victim to  predatory type persons with criminal intentions, SPIS employs a logical, methodical procedure in screening out that type of person before they get into your organization.  SPIS does not rely on 3rd. party databases for obtaining all criminal information. Our research is performed at the source level to ensure the information is correct and current.
 
 SPIS Unique Search Process

Identity Verification
The correct legal name, date of birth, and address history of the applicant will be verified before the search for criminal records begins.
 
Criminal Records Search
Searching criminal case filings at the source of local jurisdictions, statewide repositories (where available), national and local sex offender registries to make sure the applicant does not bring his/her criminal behavior into your organization.
 
Driving Records Search
Official documentation of a person's driving history to include all violations as well as criminal driving incidents ie, driving while intoxicated, driving while license is suspended, and vehicular manslaughter. This search also returns critical information such as the validity of the license, original issue date and expiration date.
 
Education Verification
We contact the institution of higher learning to verify attendance, major area of study and degree earned. It is important to note that we may also be able to determine if the institution is accredited or is a "diploma mill".
 
Employment Verification
We verify the dates of employment, position,  salary as well as eligibility of rehire. Results in this portion of investigation will vary according to the policies of the former employer contacted.
 
Professional Designation Verification
We verify the existence of a professional designation, including but not limited to Ph.D.,LLD, MDiv, B.S.N, R.N., C.E., M.D., M.P.H., D.D.S., etc. This tool is imperative when placing a person in a position of leadership in any organization.
 
Federal Records Search
Certain crimes and civil matters may be tried and the records stored at the Federal Records Level. SPIS maintains the ability to search and extract records from these centers.
