Background checks and pre-employment background checks are normally performed by private investigators for the purpose of getting the truth about a subject’s history or background. Private investigators in Reno are skilled in getting the records that are buried in the court system. Many states, and counties such as Washoe County in Nevada, are what is known as a “non-reporting” state. These non-reporting states and counties don’t report to any online background checks or background screening database. So, pre-employment background screening companies or corporations that suggest you are getting a pre-employment or employment background checks can be misleading and expose you to liabilities in the long run. Employment screening companies would rather provide mass results, rather than fact and actual reports of facts by hand checking all courts and records. Background check costs will vary depending on local or nationwide searches, as there are many variables for a background report or a background investigation.

Private Investigator Nevada Background Checks

We are proud to say that Grate Detections are ~ National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS) ~ Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) Certified.

Don’t get caught using an “on-line data base system” or get stuck with a staffing agency that claims to background check your employees.  Most Staffing Agencies are NOT licensed Investigators and do not check ALL the local or nationwide courts but only run personal or employee information through a “database” system and hope for a “hit”.  Grate Detections makes sure that does not happen and we physically hand check ALL local courts and make sure all Non-Reporting Courts are also hand checked. Nevada is a NON-REPORTING STATE.  This means that MOST of the counties in Nevada and many other nationwide counties DO NOT REPORT to ANY “online data base systems” And when it really counts, certainly don’t rely on some instant $9.99 internet database search to get your necessary information.
