The state of Arizona ranks 1st nationally in DUI criminal penalties, 7th for DUI arrests, and 21st for percentage of DUI-related fatalities. It is one of the most common infractions in the entire United States, but Arizona is known for having one of the harshest DUI penalties. Assuming it’s your first offense, you could still face up to 10 days in jail, about $1,500 in fines, a 90-360 day license suspension, screening and counseling requirements, and an ignition interlocking device installed so that you are required to take the breathalyzer test each time before you can even start your car.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration requires a stringent application of field sobriety tests by police officers. They must adhere to three stages during the process: examine the driving pattern of the suspect, make observations during initial contact with the suspect, and then conducting the test itself. Although police officers are highly trained and certified to administer a field sobriety test, not all procedures are performed to the standard level of merit. Sometimes this can be due to faulty equipment, the breath sample itself, or even the inadequate execution of police protocol during these stages. If any of these conditions come into question, you trained private investigator Phoenix that can provide you with the critical assistance you’ll need to circumvent a DUI charge.
When most people think of background checks, they only think about criminal history. While this is one of the most important aspects of a background check, many other factors are involved.
Who conducts a background check?– Employers always perform background checks on their applicants. The safety of their employees, as well as ensuring the security of their assets, is often a top priority. Landlords perform background checks as well. Just as employers want to be sure of their candidates for hire, so are landlords cautious with the selection of their tenants. Even private individuals can conduct a background check. Some reasons for this include hiring a caretaker for a child or elderly family member or even uncovering marital records.
What information is found during a background check? – Criminal and civil records are the major areas of inquiry. Depending upon the information wanted, we can provide a complete background check to uncover the facts you need to know. From pre-employment, premarital, property, assumed name, sex offender, bankruptcy report, court report, driver license, voter registration investigations, and more. Contact us for more information.
Is there something suspicious going on at home? A domestic investigation can include anything from surveillance and security to fraud and criminal activity anywhere on your property. But most domestic investigations involve suspicion of infidelity. Gryphon Consulting provides both services.
Arizona has the 10th highest divorce rate in the country. While this may be due in part to the state’s economic strains and “no-fault” option when filing, extramarital affairs are still frequent in Arizona. Phoenix alone has been rated the 3rd highest U.S. city for cheating spouses and unfaithful significant others. If you suspect your spouse or significant other is cheating on you, or if you suspect any criminal activity occurring on your property, contact experience private investigators at Gryphon Consulting.
A Global Positioning System (GPS) device is a tracking unit designed to monitor whom- or whatever it is attached to. Do you have a teenage driver at home? The recorded data will track every movement of the vehicle, or the individual’s own movements in real time. Monitor an employee, spouse, child, pet, or valuable personal possession. We can make the process discreet, inconspicuous, and provide an investigative report based on the observed data.
Child custody cases can often be difficult, confusing, and highly emotional. Most child custody cases result from divorce or separation of the parents, or because both parents are legally rendered incapable of providing care for their child or children. Our investigative process is handled delicately to ensure that children are not directly involved or placed under any unnecessary additional duress.
The Arizona Department of Child Safety reported 24,787 calls to the Child Abuse Hotline in a 6-month period last year. 25.4% of children in foster care have been in out-of-home care for 13 to 24 months. And 87.2% of children in foster care are there because of neglect. If you are concerned about the safety of your child, observe signs of emotional or physical abuse or neglect, or believe the other parent is involved with drugs, alcohol, or criminal activity, please contact us to ensure your peace of mind and determine what legal options are available to you.
