Screening Methods

NCS will attempt to obtain both telephonic and written references from the applicant’s employers of the previous five years. Gaps of over 90 days will be accounted for and documented. Should an applicant not have been in the workforce for the preceding five years, references from educational institutions attended during this time frame may be substituted.

Drug Screening

Applicants will be required to complete and pass a drug test. NCS receives the results of the testing verbally the same day and if needed, a written certification can be obtained within 72 hours. NCS is committed to a drug-free workplace and employs a random drug testing policy.

Health Requirements

All officers may be required to pass a physical. They must be in good health and without physical defects or abnormalities, which would interfere with performing their duties.
