Question
Hello, if a person commited a low level non drug non violent felony in the year 2001, can they get a low paying security job(will a 10 year old felony show up on the background check?)ive grown up and just wanted to know, thanks

Answer
Brian,

It all depends on the state that you live in and what the security company believes in representative of your character. It is always better regardless of the circumstances to disclose any and all felonies. However, depending on the circumstances and the state that your reside in or the state that the felony took place, you may be able to get your records expunged. However, if you ever apply for a government (state or local) in most cases they will be able to have those records unsealed or will be able to identify that the felony exited in your past. Nonetheless, it is always better to disclose this information up front.

Generally, most business entities including the vast majority of security companies are only concerned about your past 10 year criminal or civil records. The public online databases that most people use to pull this information only go back 10 years. However, all records can be manually reviewed and or retrieved in the county court where the offense took place. So if any company wanted to know what you did 20 years ago, there's nothing stopping them from having the records (which are probably now on microfilm or microfiche) manually retrieved.

So the short answer is yes, in most cases 10 years would be the max that most security companies would conduct a background check, especially if it is out of state. However, in most cases they will automatically exclude criminal or civil records (depending on the type of crime and correlation of the job you are applying for) if you disclose that the offense took place over 10 years ago. Honesty is always the best answer...

Expertise

I enjoy answering questions relating to private & general investigations including but not limited to locates, skip tracing, surveillance, stalking, child custody, criminal defense, civil, corporate security/executive protection, workplace violence/threat assessments, personal security, security surveillance systems and GPS tracking/monitoring products & services. Specifically, I answer questions regarding state laws concerning private investigation practices, as well as the best practices & standard operating procedures used by most reputable private investigative firms. I can give you state & federal references when dealing with issues that may or may not be legal in your specific state. IE- Some states have laws which conflict with federal law such as California's "2 party law" for surreptitious audio recordings. I offer tips on how to identify the right investigative firm for your particular case and what type of questions that investigative firm should be asking you. QUICK TIP #1: NEVER hire a Private Investigative firm that is not concerned about providing you a written contract that specifically outlines the agreement and responsibilities of both parties!!! A written contract should be expected & demanded by both investigative firm and client 95% of the time. I have numerous resources and will point you in the right direction. Whether it is hiring an attorney, a specialist or offering tips on conducting LEGAL investigations & research yourself. I offer advise regarding the kind of info you can legally obtain, what's not legal for you to obtain and when you need to hire a professional to obtain the info on your behalf. Lastly, I have over 20 yrs of experience as a Security Professional/Consultant and 12+ yrs within the Investigative profession. As the 2009 President of a state Private Investigation Association, I have professional knowledge, experience & established resources that supply me with the most recent legislative issues & industry trends.
