I am having a problem, I would like to post to the wisdom of the list.
In the past our CR (also IH), The fire chief sent adult leader apps. to the
police department for background checks. Recently he has been advised that
this is no longer allowed by the National Crime Computer people. I work
part time for state police, so I know that this is true.
He has refused to sign off leader apps, being concerned about the liability
he encurrs without being able to run criminal history checks.
My DE has suggested that we go to an outside source to run security checks.
This could cost upwards of $10.00 a shot. I do not see how we can ask a
parent who is already being asked to pay for registration, to pay for the
security check. And I am not sure the Pack and troop can afford it.
PLEASE!!!!!! Tell me what your procedures are for background checks on
