We provide our individual clients reduced fear and stress when choosing someone to bring into their own, intimate, personal lives.

What We Believe

We believe there’s a tragic misunderstanding of what a “background” is and what it means. We believe that a full scope background investigation should not be reserved only for government agencies or the most elite families and institutions.

We believe there’s a simple solution to provide professionals better information regarding current and future team members which allows them to focus on more important things.

Shortcut to Success

We provide the due diligence and full disclosure to ensure that you’re right. We believe your life will only be as good as the people you have in your lives.

Dramatic Improvement

All our data from our reports are based on a un-biased view and factual evidence. We will not persuade any client of the guilt or innocence of individual under investigation, we will not omit any facts or material data, FullScope will simply report and advise based on our findings.

Our leadership

Fullscope Background was founded by retired police executives with a simple mission: help clients see a bigger picture so they can make better decisions.

The passion, experience and dedication make Fullscope Background a great place to work. And we love working with clients!
