Safety Done Right in Volunteer Management
Protect the people you care about with comprehensive background checks using advanced technology. ACS Technologies® and Verified First are partnering to bring you this new and improved solution because in today’s world, it’s never been this important to know exactly who is volunteering, serving, working, and caring for everyone in your church family.
#1. This leading, most comprehensive background check process verifies information in the top worldwide screening databases, including:

- Sex offender registries
- Interpol, terrorist & FBI watch lists
- Alias searches if requested
- Valid issuance of Social Security Numbers

never need to ask for a Social Security Number

#2. It is the most integrated with your ChMS, providing you with an easy-to-use, quick way to fully manage background screenings. Here are just a few benefits:
- Process screenings in bulk, based on a search. You can handle all of your staff and volunteers at once.
- Search for cases where follow-up is needed, or when it’s time for a renewal.
- Add reference codes to make it easier to connect individual screens to relevant departments.
Pastors want everyone safe.
As a leader, your ultimate responsibility is to protect your attendees and give them a safe and secure environment for worship.
- Protect your people, finances, and records. Trust those with access to sensitive information.

- Reduce hiring mistakes before it’s too late by providing a safe work environment for your staff and volunteers to do their jobs and care for others.
- Comply with all federal and state laws and insurance requirements by running better and more comprehensive background checks on employees and volunteers.
