Kings County Criminal Record Checks
The risk level of the volunteer position helps indicate if a criminal record check is necessary. A High Risk volunteer position should probably complete a criminal record check with a vulnerable sector search. A Medium Risk volunteer position should have a regular criminal record check. A Low Risk volunteer position may not require a check. All organizations should assess their volunteer position risk levels to determine their screening requirements.
It is recommended that any volunteer working with the vulnerable sector in any capacity completes a criminal record check with the vulnerable sector search.
