Because of the liabilities involved, background checks are rapidly becoming a requirement for any organization that has volunteers that interact with children or other vulnerable populations. eCoordinator allows you to run background checks on your volunteers and review those background checks online anytime, anywhere. If you do not see this feature in your system but are interested in having it turned on, please contact a Samaritan Client Services.
Samaritan Technologies has partnered with Safe Advantage Services to provide an integrated background checking experience from within eCoordinator. From within your account, you can request certain checks and them view them at your leisure. Once a check is run, the data is permanently stored within your database, so that you can revisit it anytime you desire. Listed below are the current checks* which can be run through eCoordinator:
|•||Sex Offender Search (I)**: Checks 51 sex offender databases nationwide (50 states and District of Columbia).|
