BACKGROUND CHECK PROGRAM: The Crofton Football Club and The Department of Recreation and Parks want to ensure that every individual who has the opportunity to interact with children undergo a background check. A criminal history check serves as a means to review an individual’s background in respect to their participation with youth activities. No screening process can offer absolute assurances; yet, knowing an individual’s criminal background can provide more certainty that people with a history of inappropriate behavior will not have access to our children. As such, the objectives of the County’s background check program are to ensure that our children have a safe and positive experience and to provide parents with peace of mind.
