Online Personal History Statement (PHS)

Review the PHS for any areas of concern such as prior drug use, domestic violence incidents or prior arrests.
Print a PHS in an incident style report and any departmental waivers for the applicant to provide an original signature and initials on each page.
Automatically generate law enforcement correspondence based on applicant address data. Background Assistant™, using information from National Public Safety Information Bureau, producers of the Law Enforcement Directory, has embedded public safety address information in the application that automatically prints to correspondence documents.
Automatically create law enforcement inquiry letters for prior residences, employment history, military service and other areas where the applicant has lived, worked or possibly had contact with a law enforcement agency, greatly enhancing the scope of your investigation.
Choose to auto generate educational, employment, landlord, and character reference correspondence. All inquiry letters are preformatted and provide both a cover letter and questionnaire when applicable.
