How to do background checks for New Life Island.

There are three background checks that must be done on each person serving at New Life Island each summer. They are:

1. A criminal check 2. A child abuse check and 3. An FBI fingerprint check.

The first two can be done online. The fingerprint check will involve a bit more effort.

In general, when you follow the link to the proper website you will only need to complete the required information. These questions will usualy have an asterisk or some other symbol telling you that they are required.

Below are more specific instructions for each check.

If you run into any difficulties please contact Norm MacKenzie at New Life Island. 610-294-9644 or camp@nli.org

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Child Abuse Background Check

If you don't have one you will need to create an individual account with a username and password.

Answer the questions and follow the instructions. You will receive a certificate that shows you have no previouse records.

If you run into any difficulties please contact Norm MacKenzie at New Life Island. 610-294-9644 or camp@nli.org

Criminal Background Check

Start by following this link: https://epatch.state.pa.us/Home.jsp

You do not need to create a username or password.

Click on "Submit a new record check". On the next page accept the terms of usage at the bottom. You will fill out a form naming yourself as the requestor and on the next page you will fill out the form asking for a check on yourself.

The check is pretty much instant. When the report comes back click on the control number and then on the "Cerification Form" link to see and print your actual certificate.

FBI Fingerprint Background Check

Start by following this link: https://www.pa.cogentid.com/index_dpwNew.htm

The first page has links to important information like "Print Site Locations" and for our out-of-state people, "How to Submit a Fingerprint Card to 3M Cogent". If you live out of state and are able to drive into Pennsylvania to have your fingerprints done, it is recommended that you do that. It will be easier and quicker.

You do not need to create a username or password but you do need to register.

Click on "Register Online". On the next page, click in the box at the top and then continue in the lower right.

On the next page fill out only the information in the yellow boxes. If you are mailing in fingerprints from out of state you will need to check the box at the very top. Your reason for fingerprinting is "Employment with a significant likelyhood of regular contact with children."

After registering and paying the fee, you will need to have your fingerprints taken, either at a Cogent site in Pennsylvania or someplace where you can get the cards to mail in.

The Results will be sent to your home address. New Life Island needs the original letter from the FBI.

Act Fast!

Please do not hesitate to get these checks taken care of. They don't usually take very long, but there can be unforeseen delays.

Remember, New Life Island will reimburse you for the cost of the background checks. But, you must turn in the certificates to be reimbursed and to serve at camp this summer.
