Criminal Background Checks Concern Coaches in Peters, Pa

By: Richard Clark

Background checks concern the integrity as far as career employment for many people including coaches. Lately in Peters, PA the coaches have been required to provide a criminal background check for a history of child abuse and clearance of criminal history. This concern for background checks has just recently been applied to the township. A board member committee called the Peters Township Council consisting of different citizens of the town had proposed the idea of background checks to be made. They approved the proposal in mid-January.

Jim Moodispaugh, the parks facilities manager, had stated that the program should concern the safety of the town's youth.

The town itself has a population of about 17,000 people. This is a smaller population in which volunteers are depended on to run the department of recreation. They were mostly concerned for the younger generation of the city's population. Jim Moodispaugh had stated that some of the citizens were very energetic when it came to the concern of violence in the youth sports program. However, he came to the general conclusion that the public was just thinking that this portion of the program was just a part in making the youth sports program better.

The township of Peters, PA, prides itself in setting an example to the youth with a sportsmanship ideology which help to teach sportsmanship to be number one and above in competition. The background Checks will probably be submitted for enforcement in the middle of 2006. They will be enforced by the department of recreation re-ensuring the records' privacy.
