Background Checks from Professional Private Investigators


GD Investigations in Woodbridge serving Fairfax County, Prince William & Richmond

Are you looking to validate information about someone, pull a history of suspicious individuals, or reorganize your hiring process? 

GD Investigations is here to help. We understand the value of professionally conducted and discreet background checks for a variety of applications, including immigration, businesses and corporate entities, work/student visas, and government contractors, among various other organizations.

While the laws and systems within the United States provide the capability to do background checks with varying rates of success, a PI can help you get a detailed report without raising too many eyebrows. Employers may also use such reports to assess a potential candidate’s background and check whether someone may be forging identities.

While Global Defense Investigation is based in Woodbridge, we also serve Fairfax County, Prince William, and Richmond. To know more about our services and how we’ve helped various high-profile organizations in the past decade, get in touch with us today.

Circumstances When GDI Provides Background Checks


It’s critical to verify information as part of processing immigration paperwork legally. Adequate background checks let officials verify identities and ensure that all student and work visa benefits go to only qualified individuals. 

Such reports are also necessary for attorneys to make or defend cases and verify the validity of their client’s cases concerning the latest laws and regulations within the US.


Corporate/Business Enterprises

Background checks are an important part of the hiring process, used by employers to determine the identity and character of potential employees, and to help avoid a bad employment experience. Background checks provide necessary information on a person's past employment, education, criminal history, and credit rating. This type of check is often used to ensure that job applicants have provided accurate information about their background which allows employers to make informed decisions when it comes to selecting a new hire.

The purpose of a background check is to help employers accurately assess an individual’s character before offering them employment. These checks can reveal if someone has lied on their application or left out pertinent information from their resume. They also provide insight into a person’s work history and any potential legal issues they may have faced in the past, allowing employers to decide whether or not they would be suitable for the position based on this criteria.

Whether it’s a startup or a large-scale enterprise, businesses need to ensure that all their employees have adequate qualifications and backgrounds. In a world with AI and database hacks so advanced that most documents can be forged, it can become challenging to verify credentials and qualifications of all employees manually. Even with minimal data, private investigators can validate the data on each resume and report on anything suspicious related to criminal activities or qualifications.

Such practices also help businesses comply with the Fair Credit Report Act (FCRA) and Equal Employment Opportunities Commission (EEOC) guidelines. It’s an excellent method to avoid substantial negative publicity in the long run as well.

Government Contracts

The US government has several departments such as Procurement and Homeland Security that rely on verifying identities of naturalized citizens and prospective immigrants. Oftentimes, investigative agencies may request identifiable documents of victims and suspects pertaining to serious crimes. With a resource-rich organization like GDI backing up, they can streamline several processes and draw verified information within a short time span, precious time that can help agencies act against credible threats and possibly save lives.

Members of EZgov may also require thorough background checks. Such individuals and organizations often deal with sensitive data and would want applicants who value honesty and integrity. Effective checks not only helps to build a stronger workforce, but also reduces employee turnover substantially. Moreover, third-party background checks with reputed agencies ensure compliance with federal regulations, state laws, and industry standards.
