Exemptions to Background Checks Permitted
AVRBC is pleased to announce that volunteer agencies may now request an exemption from the Registrar of the Criminal Record Review program if they commit to obtaining police record checks for their volunteers. Volunteer agencies that choose to continue using the services of the Criminal Record Review program are welcome to do so. For the full press release, please click HERE.
“AVRBC is pleased with this new development which allows our members to require background checks based on the risks and requirements of each volunteer role, ensuring that the best possible choice is made as to the type of background check needed,” AVRBC President Clare O’Kelly said.
