Performing background investigations isn’t just typing someone’s name into a search engine. If you want accurate information on a potential employee for your Clearwater, St. Petersburg, or Tampa business, or for personal reasons, you should trust the experienced staff at FORTIS IEP to get the information you need.
Experience is Key
Eric C. Stocky served as a Supervisory Special Agent after 23 years at the Department of State’s Diplomatic Security Service. During his career, he participated in over one hundred of the most important and high profile protection operations and investigations. Some of these cases include protecting Secretary of State George Schultz during a visit to El Salvador and protecting former President Khatami of Iran during his 2008 visit to the United States.
As a seasoned domestic criminal investigator, Mr. Stocky is an expert in conducting criminal investigations successfully and discreetly. He is now using his years of experience and expertise to help the citizens of Clearwater, Tampa, and St. Petersburg with private background investigations as well as protection and surveillance operations.
Reasons for Background Investigations
If you own a business or have applied to jobs, you know that sometimes background checks are conducted to ensure that a potential employee has a clean history. However, there are many other reasons that somebody might want to perform a background check.
- Business Transactions: If you are buying a business in the Tampa, St. Petersburg, or Clearwater area, or are making a substantial purchase from an individual, it is smart to run background investigations on those involved. The results of this investigation could help protect you and your assets from fraud.
- Court Proceedings: When you are involved in litigation, it is important to have as much information on your opponents as possible. It can reveal any lack of credibility that could be helpful to your case.
- Childcare: Leaving your child in the care of a babysitter or childcare facility in Tampa, St. Petersburg, or Clearwater can be a very stressful experience. By performing background investigations on babysitters and services, you can be sure that you are leaving your children in the care of a trustworthy and safe individual. You should never leave your child with someone you do not trust, and Mr. Stocky and his team can help your peace of mind.
- Relationships: If your relationship is getting serious or you are suspicious of the person you are in a relationship with, performing a background check is a way to find out more about that person. There is no shame in just wanting to be sure that your potential significant other has not been involved in any criminal activity in the past. Make sure that you, your family, and your assets are protected.
