FRPA TEAMS UP WITH NCSI

DARK BLUE AND GOLD LETTERS

Connect with our preferred background screening provider

We’ve done the research so you don’t have to, endorsing the National Center for Safety Initiatives (NCSI) as our preferred background screening provider. NCSI is a youth safety advocacy group and leading background screening provider. Their comprehensive background screenings uncover pivotal information other screening services may miss. NCSI will serve as the official partner of background checks for the Florida Recreation and Park Association.

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

 For more information, please contact:

NCSI - Director of Recreation & Parks Services
