Officer Screening

Our Screening Process

ACS uses an extensive screening process when hiring security officers and continues with intensive candidate evaluation for specific jobs. We focus on “screening-in” the best candidate by matching the skills of the officer to the skill requirements needed for the job. Our typical screening process may include the following:

  • California Bureau of Security and Investigative Services (BSIS) Licensing Verification
  • DMV History
  • 10-year employment background check
  • Personal reference check
  • Comprehensive drug screening
  • Proof of legal right to work in United States of America
  • Orientation testing and evaluation sessions
  • Client involvement and recommendations
  • Written honesty evaluation (where permitted by law)
