Eddie Sorrells, chief operating officer at DSI Security Services, a provider of security guards. Mr. Sorrells says a felon couldn't get licensed as a security guard in most states where DSI operates.
...
Eddie Sorrells is evaluating job applicants he knows he can't hire.
The chief operating officer of DSI Security Services, a provider of security guards, is checking out potential employees with felony or certain misdemeanor convictions even though they wouldn't get licensed in many of the 23 states where the firm operates.
Driving the company in that direction are government officials in Washington and elsewhere who want to give people with rap sheets a better shot at a job. Mr. Sorrells figures the reviews take up hundreds of hours of staff time a year.
"It defies common sense," said Mr. Sorrells, who is general counsel as well as COO of the Dothan, Ala., family-owned company.
...
Only then, Mr. Sorrells said, does the company reject the applicant. A felon couldn't get licensed as a security guard in most states where DSI operates, Mr. Sorrells said. Even where they could, the company-though it has hired people with minor misdemeanors-won't employ felons.
The reason is "liability concerns and what we believe is our obligation to put the most qualified and well-suited officer at the client's property," he said.
"Would I say that anyone with a felony record doesn't deserve a job? Of course not," said Mr. Sorrells. "Just not a job in the security business."
