Why Background Checks

Why? Background checks identify and document public information for a person or entity.

Initial & Annual. Background checks are most effective when utilized as an initial vetting requirement as well as an annual renewal strategy for all staff and volunteers.


Strategic Prevention. Staff and volunteers with routine and long term contact or the potential for personal and private relationships with children require the closest scrutiny.
