Providing pre-employment background checks for some of the nation's largest employment screening corporations, Florida-based GPS and Associates announces the opening of a new office in Michigan. The veteran team of professional investigators will now provide criminal records checks, employment screening and international investigative services from offices located in Florida, Tennessee and now Michigan.

One of the few background-screening corporations that is also an investigative agency, GPS, specializes in providing "hands on" criminal history background checks in Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Guam and American Samoa.

Investigators at GPS provide nationwide document retrieval and investigative services to banks, insurance companies and private and corporate groups. GPS investigators are licensed in Florida and Tennessee, and bring more than 27 years of experience to all types of investigations.

"GPS has been instrumental in furthering a stricter hiring standard in the industry that provides pre-employment background checks. We play a key role in ensuring that employers keep the criminals out," says Andy Gomez, President and CEO.

A licensed investigator, Gomez was one of the first to offer nationwide employment screening services. Today, the company's pre-employment screening services include criminal record searches, civil litigation searches, bankruptcy filings, comprehensive background reports, corporate searches, drug testing, education verification and more. Documents can be retrieved at all levels, from local to global (upon request).

Julye Bakos, Vice President and Private Investigator, speaking recently at an investigators' forum, stated that"GPS always goes the extra mile, not just to screen a profile but also to investigate carefully, confidentially, and conclusively any candidate that we do a background check on."

In addition to on-site criminal background checks extending to Guam, Puerto Rico, American Samoa and the Virgin Islands, GPS conducts all investigative services, including arson, due diligence, death, comprehensive background, insurance, worker's comp, theft, fraud and the full range of investigations. Surveillance and debugging services are also available through GPS.

More information about these effective and efficient services can be found at the GPS and Associates website.
