Volunteer Screening

Why order a Volunteer Screening report?

Research Services works with a wide range of charities, churches, nonprofit and volunteer organizations. These organizations have a duty to make sure the members and guests they connect with do not pose a negative risk to themselves or others. The elderly and children are main components of these industries. This makes background checks a necessity not just for the well-being of all those involved but the families of those involved.

Common Searches for Volunteers may Include:

Criminal

Research Services’ criminal reports will assist you in finding the right volunteers. Volunteers’ hearts can be in the right place, but they may not be a good fit for your organization. Criminal reports will help put you in a position to better match volunteers to the job at hand. A person who recently was convicted of a burglary charge probably won’t be suited to watch over children.

DCF Check

The Connecticut Department of Children and Families (DCF) check will look into the Central Registry of Child Abuse & Neglect. Volunteers will all have to be cleared before they can start helping and potentially come into contact with children. Research Services can help lessen your burden by staying on top of the state requirements and let you focus on the children. We will send the DCF request and include the verified form in your report.
You should always check with the official CT.Gov page to check for new versions of the DCF form.

Driving History

Driving history checks will protect your organization. Anyone required to have driving responsibilities should not pose a threat to others. Parents, brothers, sisters, friends will thank you for shielding their loved ones from potential harm. Imagine Grandma Johnson getting chauffeured around by someone who just got arrested for their third DUI. Risk is in our everyday lives, let Research Services minimize that liability for your organization.

National Criminal

A national criminal will include a variety of information across the United States. You will be able to prescreen states you may not have known your potential volunteer lived or worked in. The national check also covers a nationwide sex offender search in addition to international and domestic watchlists.

Social Security

Research Services’ Social Security report will not only validate the Social Security number but will list other names and addresses the volunteer may have used. Today, we are seeing more and more release forms/applications/resumes with omitted information. The Social Security report helps you fill in the holes by leaving any future deferments at the door. Whether it’s a criminal record under a different name or a state they failed to mention, the Social Security report will assist in uncovering any deceitful behavior before it affects your organization’s network.
