Background checks, backround screening, and background searches. We go beyond conventional on-line screening offerings. We are Vermont Investigators, Security Specialists and Background Screeners.
The Barton Security Agency was established in 1974 by Peter Barton as a security service to the newly emerging recreational industry in New England. From there the business expanded to provide professional investigative services for a wide range of clients: corporations, individuals, retail, manufacturing, educational, banking, industry, and utilities. Our services now include national and international contacts to better serve our clients
The Purchase of New England Investigative Services expanded the investigative services provided. Anita Bobee joined the staff as a full time employee (having worked behind the scenes for several years prior).
Backgrounds Plus was created to meet the demands for background screening services.
One fastest growing specialization is that of pre-employment screening which allows clients to identify strengths and weaknesses in the applicants they screen. This service covers the Negligent Hire Doctrine requirements as well as government contract screening for workers. Not everyone can be trusted, is able or willing to work within a strict framework of rules and regulations or can be counted on to work independently without supervision. Retention of good employees can save employers many headaches as well as money. Background screening is not limited to employment scenarios for large corporations; it can include individuals for personal care use or for volunteer screening to protect much of the “vulnerable population” who rely on this type of service for their needs.
Our staff includes many investigators with law enforcement training and expertise in a variety of specialized services including computer forensics, video and digital imaging , surveillance and data gathering.
