Loxahatchee, FL (PRWEB) July 1, 2009
IntegraScan.com, a leading provider of background check services and criminal record checks, has announced they have given away more than $100,000 in criminal background checks during the first week of the IntegraScan Safe Kids Program.
This unique program was spearheaded to help ensure that children involved in youth organizations of all types are protected from violent criminal behavior on the part of organization employees and volunteers.
According to national statistics, the number of youth organizations conducting background checks on employees and volunteers has dropped alarmingly due to economic troubles and reduced funding.
In order to halt this frightening trend, IntegraScan recently announced they would give away $500,000 in criminal background checks each month to youth organizations around the nation. The unprecedented success of the IntegraScan Safe Kids program during its very first week is a testament to the need for these background checks.
The frightening reality is that if left unchecked, volunteers and employees with a history of manslaughter, rape, molestation, kidnapping and other heinous crimes can easily gravitate to these programs. Due diligence is the only method by which these undesirable individuals can be kept from harming the nation's youth.
IntegraScan urges parents to voice their concerns to organization leadership and encourages youth organizations to take advantage of criminal record and background checks, in order to facilitate a safer environment for youth.
