The school year may be wrapping up for the season, but September will be here before we know it – and with it, school trips.

Many school boards in Canada offer the chance for parents or volunteers to attend as chaperones. This can be a lot of fun for both the parent and the child.

Often, however, to be approved as a chaperone, volunteers must submit a criminal background check.

In the past, criminal background checks were tedious to obtain. They meant a trip to the local police station, filling out paperwork, waiting for the report, and then another trip to the police station to pick up the results. Sometimes the results could take days, or even weeks, to come through.

If you’re in a time crunch, or there’s a last-minute chaperone opening, you might not be able to wait.

That’s where online background checks come in!

At Triton, we offer fast, convenient criminal background checks* that you can access without ever leaving your home.

All you need to do is fill out an online form and your results are ready within an hour. It’s affordable, too – individuals can get police record checks for just $59. You’ll be chaperoning the school trip before you know it.

School boards can also work with Triton to arrange checks for a larger number of volunteer applicants.
