NEW YORK (Reuters) - More than one-third of jail guards recently hired by the New York City Department of Correction had problems including gang affiliations, criminal histories and significant psychological problems, the city Department of Investigation said on Thursday.

In a review of more than 150 recent applicants, the department found red flags that should have disqualified more than a third of them from policing the problem-plagued city jails or, at the very least, prompted further review, the report said. Instead, all were hired.

Investigators found hiring practices in such disarray that staff in charge could not decipher the applicant evaluation system, which used a scale of 1 to 5, saying they were not sure whether a 1 or a 5 was the best score.

Background investigations on done half-assed for the most part when it comes to hiring jailers. A few years ago Dallas County Sheriff's Department had an illegal immigrant working for them for a few years as a jailer. It was revealed when they conducted a FULL background check when she applied to be promoted to Deputy Sheriff.

My background investigation was wrapped up over 2 years after I was hired.
