WRPA Announces Partnership with National Center for Safety Initiatives to Strengthen Background Check Process for Staff and Volunteers

Seattle, WA  / December 3, 2019 - Washington Recreation and Park Association announced today that it has formed a partnership with the National Center for Safety Initiatives (NCSI), a leader in youth-centered safety solutions to offer background checks as part of NCSI’s Affinity Program.

NCSI will serve as the official provider of background checks for the Washington Recreation and Park Association. A SportsEngine, Inc. company, NCSI provides the “Gold Standard” in background screening, serving youth sports organizations, national governing bodies and over 3,000 city and county recreation departments across the country. NCSI is accredited by the National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS) and is the only background check provider endorsed by the National Council of Youth Sports.

“The safety of the children involved in our members programs is a priority,” stated Tiffany Hanzo Martin, WRPA Executive Director. “To partner with NCSI to provide comprehensive background checks for our members Agencies and to provide way to give back to the association, the partnership just made sense."

“We are thrilled to have WRPA join our roster of partners and take the next step in helping to ensure the safety of children,” said Chris Goodman, Director of Recreation and Parks. “We’re dedicated to providing safe and positive experiences for children and we commend WRPA for doing their part to protect children on and off the playing field.”

NCSI conducts background checks that go beyond a basic local or national database search to help organizations discover records that might have been missed on other searches. With the support of WRPA, Washington parks and recreation departments can be confident in a thorough background screening process that reflects their agency’s standards of due diligence.

WRPA encourages its members to take advantage of NCSI’s experience and knowledge by considering NCSI for background screening solutions.
