In addition to being objective and utilizing necessary “people skills” to effectively help
clients, our investigators are required to meet the following criteria:
|The EPPS team is a close knit team who works on a system of fairness and
will vote on all matters that effect the team. EPPS membership applicants,
in addition to completing our six step application process, must meet the
following criteria before being inducted as a full EPPS member. Once an
applicant has applied with EPPS, the EPPS team will meet and vote as to
whether any applicant will continue to the next step or to be fully inducted
to the team. At all times, we keep our clients best interest in mind.
Step 1) All applicants for EPPS membership must first complete our basic online
application located at the bottom of this page. After your application has been
reviewed, EPPS will contact you to advise you whether or not you will proceed to the
next step of the recruitment process.
Step 2) All applicants must then participate in a short phone interview with a
designated active member who will collect further information from you which will be
used to determine if you will proceed to the next step.
Step 3) Advancing applicants will then be assigned an appointment time and location
to meet with several EPPS members for a more formal interview at which time you
will be asked to complete a full and detailed membership application. During this
meeting we will further discuss our procedures and requirements.
Step 4) Applicant advancing to this step will be invited to join the EPPS team for a
mock or an actual investigation. This gives us an opportunity to show you how we
operate. You will be observed performing various investigative tasks assigned to
you. This is a critical step for both the EPPS team as well as the applicant to decide
whether or not we are compatible with each other.
Step 5) All applicants who successfully arrive at this step will be administered a
written test. This test will cover all information regarding EPPS policy and
procedures as well as investigative methods which are adopted by EPPS. You will be
well advised as to what will be required prior to taking this test.
Step 6) Criminal background check. Every EPPS membership applicant must submit
to having a full criminal background check conducted on themselves. Costs for said
check will be incurred by the applicant however, EPPS will only ask the applicant to
subject to this step after they are voted in by the team as a provisional member.
Note: All provisional members will remain listed as provisional until they meet the
criteria listed above under our ASPR guidelines and can demonstrate routinely that
they are following our set sop's and safety procedures as well as showing a high
level of professionalism. Additionally, you will also be required to complete at least
five (5) full investigations with the EPPS team. After these conditions are met, you
will then be considered for full EPPS membership and vacate the provisional status.
