School Volunteer Background Checks Policy Keep You Up At Night?

Honestly, I would not let you babysit my dog if your criminal background check was a cheap database or limited criminal history search.

Hang on. I hear your groaning already.  “You don’t understand how tight school budgets are right now.”

Yes I do.  I feel your pain.  But the truth of the matter is we have to make keeping our kids safe a top priority.

I have spent the past 15 years working to end violence as a detective and consultant so I know how slick, dangerous and committed our enemy is.   People who harm kids seek positions with access to them.

Does that really surprise you?

The economy has handed us a couple years of devastating budget cuts which has shifted our focus to the bottom line.  Believe me, I understand.

However, our enemy does not sleep, take a vacation or go away when the economy falters.  He (or she) has an insatiable appetite that is only satisfied by abusing our children.

So is your gut telling you a free background check is too good to be true?  It is.  The Limited Criminal History for Indiana schools might be free but it comes at a greater cost.   Risk of harm.   That is why the state no longer allows schools to use it for screening employees or contractors.

If you think $10 is too good to be true.  It is.  There is no such thing as a quality background check for $10.  Sorry.  I know, other background screening firms swear a background check can be done for $10.  Baloney.  Ask them to guarantee their cheap search.

The great news is high quality school volunteer background checks can be completed for just a few dollars more.  And there are options that do not impact your budget.
