Criminal History Background Check Program
This program is for national criminal history background checks and can be used for both employees and volunteers. Background checks can be accessed through BIO-MED on the internet or by fax. Inquiry results will be returned the same day. BIO-MED also has materials and information that will help your district be compliant while conducting background checks.
Background checks are conducted from a national database that collects information from:
• State Court Repositories
• State Administrative Office of the Courts (AOCs)
• Departments of Correction (DOCs)
• County Court Records
• Traffic Court Records
• State Level Sex Offender Registries
• Probation, Parole and Community Service Records
SDAO member fees for the program are:
• $29.00 per background check
SDAO will pay for the first five criminal history background checks that your district conducts in a calendar year. BIO-MED will bill SDAO for these five checks and then bill your district for any additional checks conducted each year.
