Session Description:
Do you issue facility use permits?  Are you concerned about keeping known “high-risk” individuals from gaining access to children on public facilities under your control and still remaining compliant with Florida Law?  Pitfalls uncovered and policies in place help keep the deep pockets of public agencies protected from substandard background screening procedures.
