Vulnerable Sector Queries

At the request of the organization and with the authorization of the applicant, a Vulnerable Sector screening search for Pardoned Sexual offenders is conducted. This search is specifically for individuals who will be employed or volunteering in a position that requires direct contact with children, seniors and vulnerable adults, such as teachers, social workers, taxi drivers, day-care workers, adoptive parents, etc.

Cautionary Note

No screening process is foolproof. Matches on information are based on name and personal identifiers and not by fingerprint comparison. False indentification or legal name changes may conceal pertinent information.
