Are You Mandatory Reporter?
The law requires that any person who is employed by or volunteers for any organization to provide care for children and are in positions of authority over children must report any suspected or accusations of child abuse or negligence.
Filing a complaint does not require proof that child abuse has occurred. Incidents should be reported as soon as they are suspected.
If a mandatory reporter ceases to make a complaint and a minor suffers damage, the complainant may be punished under the penal or civil law.

FB 20 Child Protection and Volunteer Screening Policies
Adventist Screening Verification offers background checks of the highest quality and accuracy. They use proprietary technology and a set of unique criminal locators to find more criminal records at America's county and state courthouses and to deliver the most accurate information available about our volunteers.
They are expanding the breadth and depth of the background checks that have typically been offered to volunteer programs. Their screening process goes far beyond the stale, instant database background checks and incomplete searches of other providers. And, with their optional identity validation product, they are closing gaps that exist in even extremely robust volunteer screening programs.
