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.

Volunteer Screening Fact Sheet

Screening practices are ongoing and go beyond the selection process.  Screening promotes better volunteer matching, improved quality and safety of programs and reduced risks and liability.
