What are you doing to protect vulnerable populations? 

Use of the National Sex Offender Registry is a growing trend among non-regulated and private organizations, such after school programs and youth sports leagues, who have independently implemented background screening as a safeguard against placing individuals in harms way. 

Many schools now require applicants for both teaching and non-teaching positions to be cleared through the registry, in addition to nursing homes, medical professions, daycare centers and youth organizations.

Keep in mind, conduct that doesn't land an applicant on the registry could still influence your hiring decision. For this reason, the National Sex Offender Registry is most comprehensive when paired with county criminal searches. Access to the registry is included in the Verified National Criminal and Verified Enhanced National Criminal, although your industry regulator may require this as a stand-alone product.
