About Our Background Check
All of our volunteers, whether board members or project staffers are required to complete a background check. Although we recruit from various counties, our background check currently goes through the Lansing Police Department. By the nature of our program we receive sensitive information regarding criminal activities as well as the individuals involved, or thought to be involved, in criminal activities. It is important that our volunteers are of the highest integrity and maturity.
Our volunteers must be able to respect the confidentiality of the information. Information learned at our meetings, stays at our meetings
NOTE: by filling out the application, the consent to release information form, and the personal information form for the police background check, you are providing us full permission under the Fair Credit Reporting Act to do a complete background check for your requested position.
