TRUE STORY on the importance of Continuous Criminal & Driving Monitoring:

[Phone rings]

Ann: “Cutting Edge, this is Ann.”

Customer: “I need you to re-check one of the house managers of my nursing home. One of the staff looked at Carol’s Facebook and Carol told the world on Facebook that she stabbed her boyfriend last night.

Well, sure enough. They called Carol in to the owner’s office and she at first said,”No, I just slapped him.” When they pointed out that she claimed she stabbed him, she admitted the truth. Carol was charged with felony Assault with a Deadly Weapon.

Do you want her to continue to work in your nursing home?

Continuous Criminal Monitoring and Continuous Driving Monitoring are coming into the forefront of background screening.

While pre-employment background checks are largely binary: felony conviction = no hire, Continuous Criminal Monitoring is an on-going process done post-hire. As much as we would like to believe that our employees live exemplary lives outside of work, that is not always the case.

Why is Continuous Criminal and Driving Monitoring so important?

  1. Continuous monitoring typically generates real-time alerts that align to the organization’s pre-employment background check. This commonly includes criminal activity and leading indicators of material financial stress.
  2. It operates with 100% employee consent. Consent is obtained as part of the pre-hire process, which also enables ongoing post hire rechecks, or reviews. Note: It may require updating of personnel policies and procedures.
  3. It covers 48 states and more than 2,800 incarcerations facilities. The data updates every hour and often as frequently as every 15 minutes. Each month, 160 million booking records and 1 million records are added.
  4. It is especially useful for companies that need their employees to have clean driving records. A DUI or suspension may mean big trouble if an employer is not aware.

Continuous Criminal Monitoring and Continuous Driver Monitoring may go a long way to protecting your company, your employees, your customers and your reputation.
