Overview

The purpose of the Department of Recreation and Parks’ Background Check Program is to ensure that every individual who interacts with children undergoes a criminal history records check. The objective o the Background Check Program is to provide parents with peace of mind knowing their children are provided a safe and positive experience.
 
A criminal history records check serves as a means to review an individual’s background in respect to their participation with youth activities. While no screening process can grant absolute assurances, knowing an individual’s criminal background can provide greater certainty that an individual with a history of inappropriate behavior will not have access to our youth. A parent’s watchful eye is still our greatest resource to keep our children safe. Click here for Background Check information
