Thanks for your help. To be more specific. There are three
particular forms that I must fill out.
1) -Request for local law enforcement check for applicants/employer-
This form is supposed to be filled out with personal
information and given to my local law enforcement agency which should in
turn provide information on my criminal history (non-existant) directly
to camp Wallwood. What I don't understand is what "local" means. Is
this Leon County Florida, where the camp is located, or is this
Atlanta Georgia, where I am located?
2) -Department of Heatlth and Rehabilitative Services (FL) deposition-
This is basically a lengthy list of offenses in Florida that
I am suuposed to swear that I have never been found guilty of or to have
plead nolo contendere to. This is to be sworn to and signed for a state
of Florida notary public. The offenses are those that would relate to
working at the camp; murder, assault, sex crimes, drug use, etc.
3) -HRS Florida protective services system background check-
This is simply consent for the Camp and HRS to initiate any
pertinent background check on their own concerning reports of abuse,
neglect or exploitation on record or acts of delinquency. This appears
to be the standard form for day care workers, nursing home workers,
foster care operators etc.
My problem is with form (1). What is local?
I think part of the reason that they want all of these checks is because
my job as High Adventure Director does not take place at camp Wallwood.
The program takes place in the Appalachicola Natl. Forest near the
Ochlocknee river. I will have at least one adult volunteer along and an
Eagle Scout employed by the camp. The adult/s will be leaders of some
of the kids participating (I believe) and the required number of adults
will always be present.
This is my first year with camp Wallwood (I worked in the
conservation dept. at Philmont last summer) so if anyone knows anything
about this camp I would appreciate your comments.
