The importance of safety programs and background checks

NCSI, a SportsEngine, Inc. company, is a youth safety advocacy group and leading background screening provider. More than 3,000 city and county agencies across the U.S. already trust NCSI to minimize risk and help keep communities safe with comprehensive background screening programs.
Why we recommend NCSI background screenings
We’ve done the research, and no other background screening provider can compare to NCSI—both in terms of the quality of support that they provide and the unmatched depth that their background checks reach to uncover pivotal information other screenings may miss.
NCSI delivers the Gold Standard in background screenings, and when it comes to the safety of children, we believe that choosing a discount over quality isn’t a risk worth taking.
