A Background Check, Background Report, or Background Investigation consists of compiling criminal, civil, residential, driving, vehicle registration, academic, employment, professional licensing, and cursory financial records on a person, business, or organization. These records may or may not lead to further investigations into the history of target, depending on the direction of client. Many clients find these services invaluable, including landlords, employers, and those involved in online dating.
The Operation These types of investigations begin with a private investigator utilizing their access to a wide array of databases and contacts to retrieve and compile pertinent information on the background of a specified target. The reports may specifically focus on a certain area interest or consist of general records that cover many aspects related to the subject. The reports are then provided to the client who decides what steps to take next. While many clients may be satisfied with the reports generated from the preliminary investigation, other will require that an investigator follow up by contacting individuals who may have personal information about the target.
The Results A Background Investigation will result in the generation of reports detailing a clear picture of the person, business, or organization at the center of the investigation. Clients may require additional services upon receiving these reports, such as surveillance and interviews with those close to the subject. In addition to raw data reports, overview reports summarizing these results will also be provided along with a licensed and reputable investigator who is prepared to testify at hearings and other court settings if necessary. The private investigator working the case will also be available to consult with attorneys and other individuals regarding the results of these investigations.
