Cal North's Live Scan Process

Background checks are mandatory for any adult rostered on a team that may or may not have access to children.


Cal North Pass/Fail Criteria

All California Department of Justice criminal history reports are assessed based on the criteria below.

  1. No information received back from the California Department of Justice (DOJ) concerning a conviction or arrest report is a PASS.
  2. A conviction reported by the DOJ for crimes of violence, crimes against children, sex crimes, or possession of an illegal substance for intent to sell, shall be a FAIL.
  3. An arrest reported by the DOJ for crimes of violence, crimes against children, sex crimes, or possession of an illegal substance for intent to sell, shall be a SUSPENSION until the case is resolved and reported. At that time a PASS or DENIAL/FAIL will be determined.
  4. Any other information reported back from the DOJ, not fitting the absolute criteria specified in (b), will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

 

The Appeals Process

When the California Department of Justice (DOJ) reporting results in a FAIL or SUSPENSION decision, a letter of suspension or denial, including a copy of the DOJ report, is sent to the adult.

An adult with a ‘denied’ status has 14 days from the date of the letter to submit a letter requesting an appeal. The adult can bring court records stating information has been expunged, no longer on probation, letter of recommendation from court that they are no longer at risk, etc., to the appeal meeting.

This in-person appeal meeting will be conducted by the Chairman and/or First Vice Chair.

An immediate decision is made on suspension. The decision may be:

  • A permanent fail
  • To advise the adult to resubmit after their record has been expunged
  • To advise adult to be Live Scanned again in a year and re-reviewed
