Sometimes they are required to have an FBI criminal history check completed prior to permanent employment as a private security officer (Collins, Ricks and Van Meter, 2000).
"If the applicant is going to be armed all of the following must be done prior to employment. The applicant must furnish information about all prior employment so that they employer can make a reasonable effort to verify the last seven years of employment history along with checking three personal references. And the applicant must successfully pass a pre-employment drug screen (Collins, Ricks and Van Meter, 2000)."
