Background Checks should be customized by position

There is no ‘one size fits all’ Background Check, and there are some individuals in every program about whom you cannot afford to be wrong. Background Checks should be tailored to position; a staff member who will be working with children, students or Vulnerable Adults in a less structured or less easily supervised context requires a more in-depth screen. 

Choose from seven levels or create a CUSTOM Background Check

Background Screening: Why Trust

Abuse Prevention Systems?

Seamless Management That Saves You Time

The Abuse Prevention Systems Control Panel was specifically designed to meet the needs of organizations serving vulnerable populations – whether children, students or Vulnerable Adults. It’s simple to learn and easy to maintain – whether you’re managing 50 or 5,000 Background Checks. Administrators can easily order, track, view, archive and refresh Background Checks.

Comprehensive Training So You're In-the-Know

Screening personnel must be trained to recognize high-risk indicators for sexual abusers, as well as RED FLAG offenses on a Background Check report. Training is critical, because abusers are often allowed to plea down to a lesser offense resulting in a criminal record that may appear unrelated to sexual abuse. Abuse Prevention Systems offers Skillful Screening Training to equip Organizations to screen effectively for sexual abuse risk.

Custom Search Packages to Fit Your Organizations

Organizations that serve children, students or Vulnerable Adults have widely varying needs based on differing programs, geographic location, state law requirements and diversity of applicants. We help shape your Background Checks to match your specific needs. We’ll be with you every step of the way to build a screening solution that works for you.
