Class Overview

Two day course sponsored by OPOA and Deschutes County Sheriff's Office Priority seating for Law Enforcement, Corrections, Fire, Communications, HR and Hiring Managers. This 2-day (16 hour) interactive course is designed for individuals who are involved in public safety background investigation processes including background investigators, hiring officials, human resources, and legal representatives. This will be much more than a simple how-to background investigation course and will answer the question as to why you conduct legally sufficient background investigations and what happens if you don’t. This course will examine: • Practical strategies for background investigations, interviews, documentation, and report writing. • The current and best practices in background investigations in order to mitigate, to the extent possible, some of the risks associated with hiring. • The importance of social media screenings in background investigations. • Issues and “red flags” to be aware of in background investigations. • Assuring compliance with all applicable minimum standards for employment • How Federal Statutes and court decisions impact background investigations. • How background investigation failures can impact your organization. Attire: Business Casual Instructors: Royanne Mathiesen, Sgt. Blair Barkhurst, Deputy Jeff Denning, Background Unit Supervisor Todd Baker
