Personal History Statement
Completion and submittal of a Personal History Statement (PHS) is the first step of the Background Investigation. The PHS requires compilation of extensive biographical information, fingerprinting, and an interview with a background investigator. The investigation will also include checks of employment, police, financial, education, and military records, and interviews with family members, neighbors, supervisors, co-workers, and friends.

Honesty is the best policy. Everyone has done things they're not proud of, but the worst possible action is to try to cover it up. Please take time to carefully evaluate your background and experiences before you get started. View the Background Standards to see what types of things might negatively impact your progress.

eHire is our electronic backgrounds processing system. Currently only the Deputy level positions are using it. Below are videos that show how to use the eHire system.
eHire Invite Email
To access eHire you must receive an invitation email. You get this email once your passing written test result has been processed in our system. It is recommended you use the links from your invitation emails as it will pre-fill out all the required fields for you. We also recommend you white list or add to safe senders in your email the email addresses [email protected] and [email protected]. You can do an internet search to see how to do that for your email provider.
Accessing the Web Personal History Statement (PHS) requires you to be active in the eHire system. This video shows how to use the links in the emails you receive to access the Web PHS.
Saving a draft of a Web PHS section is easy and recommended to be done frequently. This video shows how to save a draft of your Web PHS sections and how to retrieve them after you have saved. Make sure you type your email address and password correctly. There is a password reset function, but if you type your email address incorrectly we have no way to change it for a draft. If you are not able to recover a draft you have saved, we can only reset a section for you to start over. Simply use the link at the bottom of an email we have sent you or email [email protected] to have us reset it for you. Remember to include your App ID (EH#########).
