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 in-state-only Washington State Patrol Identification and Criminal History Section (WASIS) Search, which can miss critical 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.
