As if we didn't have enough reason to raise the BS flag on background check wait times, today I was given one more. My job requires an annual criminal background check in order to obtain access to the base, regardless of the fact that I hold a high level security clearance. So it being that time of the year today I went out to the Dougherty County Jail to get my background check done. It took me longer to fill out the one page info sheet on myself and pay my eight bucks than it took them to run the check. In under five minutes I was in and out with my completed background check stating that I have no criminal history with either the Dougherty County sheriffs office or GCIC. Now, given that the FBI check is "instant" and I can get both a local and GCIC check back in under five minutes..... WHY THE #@!! DOES IT TAKE OVER 60 DAYS TO GET A GFL?!?!?!
