This book sets out to help business administrators, law enforcement officers, and human resources personnel conduct background investigations on potential employees. Employee background investigations are absolutely crucial to the career path of most supervisors. The success or failure of individual leaders and organizations often rests on whether they really ensured that an effective inquiry into an applicant's past has taken place. In addition, more and more lawsuits have been brought under the charge of "negligent hiring," which imposes direct liability for the employer's own negligence.

Background Investigation for Law Enforcement details the crucial elements of a superior background investigation process, beginning with a checklist ensuring adequate support from the upper administration. In the following chapters, Ritch explains the importance of thorough and routine background checks, alerting the reader to common pitfalls and repercussions, and then details the process of conducting a background investigation. This book is a valuable resource for anyone who may be involved in hiring procedures.
