How does Monthly Monitoring work?
- The applicant is automatically screened through a national criminal and sex offender database once a month.
- At the time of the monthly screen, if new offenses are discovered, we re-verify the potential new and adverse information.
- Next, we compile an updated consumer report for any reportable findings.
Why sign up for Monthly Monitoring?
Most churches screen people during the hiring process and then re-screen them after 12, 24, or even 36 months. The problem with this screening frequency is there are no guarantees someone won’t commit an offense while working or volunteering for your church.
If a staff member or volunteer does commit a crime, the church may not learn of this offense until the next re-screen interval (which could potentially be years later). This exposes your church to the risk of potentially huge problems.
With up-to-date information, your church can effectively mitigate some of the risks associated with an employee or volunteer committing an offense while working for you.
