The importance of safety programs and background checks
Over the last decade, organizations offering child-focused programs have experienced increased safety requirements. Those that do not comply with today’s safety mandates not only put children at risk but also their community at large. Organizations must screen anyone that comes into contact with children on their behalf, including:
NCSI’s background check program goes beyond the Tennessee Open Records Information Services (TORIS) Search, which does not search out-of-state records.
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.

NCSI USER TESTIMONIALS
Our relationship with NCSI began in 2002 when our company began conducting background screenings on all our youth athletic coaches. Since then, our partnership with NCSI has proven to be a great safety net for our programs and a valuable asset to our business. Their professionalism and efficiency have always been impressive. We even sought their advice when updating our screening policy, at which time they gave us valuable information to guide us through the process to better protect our customers. NCSI has always been there to answer any questions or concerns we may have had, and we value our relationship with them very much.
Chris Clark, Assistant Director - Maryville-Alcoa-Blount County Parks and Recreation Commission
When I am asked by other cities and parents why I am so passionate about doing proper background checks through NCSI my response is simply: I am because it is the right thing to do. Why are you not doing them? I have never been given a valid excuse for not having a background check policy because there is no excuse. Our department advertises the background checks during registration as a positive feature of our programs. It is what I want as a parent and what I will always mandate as a Director of Parks and Recreation.
