"At VPNE Parking Solutions, our employees have the responsibility to care for our customers and some of their most valuable possessions – their vehicles. Making sure we are making smart hiring decisions is critically important to our success. An important part of the hiring process is the background check screening process. Compared with our prior experience with a large national vendor, the personal “hands on” approach taken by Safer Places is quite comforting as we try to navigate the often times confusing world of background checks. Working with David, Brian and the rest of their staff at Safer Places and using their Premium Service helps to give us confidence that we are doing everything we can to hire the right people. I highly recommend them to anyone who needs the best background check services."

"We have been working with David Sawyer in many different capacities for over 30 years. From background investigations to security issues, his services have always been “the best”. Safer Places has managed to keep up with our Company growth and continues to service all our needs. With 2,000 employees in over 20 states, this is no small task. With the expertise of David and his staff at Safer Places we are able to screen our applicants and staff our Company with qualified personnel."

"We are extremely satisfied with the services provided by David Sawyer, Brian Sawyer, and the staff at Safer Places, Inc.


In the Residential Apartment Home industry, having confidence in the quality of the pre-employment background screening is paramount. As a newer client of Safer Places, Inc., it was important to us that our transition was seamless, we received a high quality background screening customized to fit our needs, and that our questions and concerns would be addressed with urgency. Safer Places, Inc. has exceeded my expectations in all areas of service and responsiveness. Their strong focus on client's needs sets them apart from the rest."

"We have been using SaferPlaces to run Criminal Background checks and Social Security traces on all of our security applicants for about 4 years. Their online request process is easy to use and their researchers are very efficient. We have been able to call them directly with any questions about the reports we’ve received and their staff even provided us with step-by-step coaching on how to appropriately handle negative reports when we received one. We are 100% satisfied with their service and look forward to continuing to work with them in the future."
