"People who volunteer with New Castle County next year and work with children or older people will have to agree to let the government conduct a criminal background check on them, a county official said Friday."
"The new policy will take effect Jan. 1. The new release form will be required for all volunteers, but the actual checks on someone's criminal history, employment history or past volunteer efforts would only be done if the person will be working with certain groups, Henry said."
Good! This should have been in place years ago, why it wasn't is anyone's guess, but bravo to they ones who got this in place. Our children are our most vulnerable class, to NOT check out volunteers in every way one can would be the crime.

This item caught me eye too. I agree. Sadly, it now seems that we can't assume the good intentions of volunteers. How things have changed!

Two things. First; as GS said, it's a shame we can no longer assume good intentions, and second; it's about time. As easy as background checks are to do, this should have been law years ago. Between pedaphiles and abusive care givers and thieves who work with children, elderly and incompetent I can't believe it took this long.
