2018 Law Provides Access to National FBI Database

Posted: Friday, May 18, 2018

Child Protection Improvements Act Becomes Law

The federal omnibus spending package passed in March 2018 included provisions for the Child Protection Improvements Act (CPIA). The CPIA provides organizations that serve vulnerable populations – such as children, the elderly, and those with disabilities – with a resource to obtain criminal background checks at a reasonable price.

In Michigan, many communities do not have a policy to conduct background checks of employees and volunteers. This relates, in part, to availability of funds, contractors, and other resources necessary to conduct nationwide criminal background checks.  The use of local law enforcement lien machines is no longer an acceptable practice for obtaining criminal background checks.

The CPIA means that MMRMA members serving the aforementioned vulnerable populations now have nationwide access to the FBI’s fingerprint-based background checks, which are a critical component of a comprehensive background review process. The maximum fee that can be charged per background check is $18.00.

Please note that no organization is required under CPIA to utilize these fingerprint background checks.

MMRMA recommends that members who use volunteers or hire employees to work with vulnerable populations establish a written criminal background check program. The individual who is volunteering or being hired must acknowledge and sign a release for a criminal background check.

CPIA directly benefits children and adults across the nation who are involved in mentoring organizations, after-school programs, youth sports, summer camps, and more.
