Police record checks are an important part of the screening process to determine suitability of employees, board members, coaches, volunteers and other service providers. Police record checks can mitigate risk of theft and fraud and can help organizations identify individuals who pose a risk to minors and other vulnerable persons. Screening is an important part of providing a safe sporting environment and has become a common practice among sport organizations that provide programs and services to the community. CAS and its Members and affiliated clubs are responsible at law to do everything reasonable to provide a safe and secure environment for participants in its programs, activities and events. Requiring that valid police record checks, and other background checks as appropriate, be submitted, as part of the screening process, is part of this duty of care.
