Delaware to Require Background Checks for Summer Camp Employees

Officials in the Delaware Department of Services for Children, Youth and their Families (DSCYF) are working to streamline background screening requirements for all summer camps in the state. The requirement would include two checks; one from the Delaware Criminal Justice Information System (DELJIS), and one from the DSCYF child protection registry. A fingerprinting option is also available but would cost $69 versus the $20-$30 that the DELJIS check costs. The proposed legislation states that applicants that have committed a crime against a child, elderly person, or vulnerable person would be banned from employment for life. It also states that if a person has committed crimes against another adult they would be banned for 10 years and other felonies would be 7 years. Misdemeanors that involve children would temporarily disqualify an applicant while other misdemeanors such as shoplifting would not prevent an applicant from employment.
