Normally at this time of year, we would be talking about getting volunteer background checks for house league hockey coaches, school chaperones, and more.
However, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has thrown a wrench into some of these regular plans.
Re-opening guidelines have varied from province-to-province to Canada, and even within provinces.
While we can’t predict the future, if your jurisdiction has allowed sports coaching, volunteering, or school chaperoning, you may need a volunteer background check — and you’ll need to know how to get one safely and quickly.
That’s where we come in! Read on for what you need to know.
Getting a Volunteer Background Check Safely
We don’t know how long physical distancing guidelines will be in effect, but whether you are limiting interactions or not the choice may not be entirely yours.
Many police stations have been closed to the public throughout the pandemic. If you need to get a police record check, there may be a special process to go through. (Check on your local station’s website to verify.)
Or, there’s another option — an online police check.
An online volunteer background check lets you safely receive the verification you need without leaving your house. You can get a check when you need it from anywhere. A personal background check from Triton Canada, for example, gives you the same data you would receive from visiting the police station, but you don’t have to leave your house to get it.
Getting a Volunteer Background Check Quickly
Speed should also factor into your background check decision. And the fastest way to get a background check, bar none, is online.
Even before COVID-19, getting a criminal record check from the police station was time-consuming. You had to drive to the station, wait in line, fill out paperwork, and then wait an additional time frame for your results. This part of the process could take anywhere from one-to-two days to one-to-two weeks — or longer! And then when it was ready, you would have to drive back to the station to pick up your results.
With an online background check, you can get your results in under an hour. At Triton Canada, you get results within 15 minutes!
If re-opening regulations change and you need a background check quickly, online is the way to go.
