Pennsylvania State Legislature has a law that all persons having repetitive
contact with children have the following clearances, criminal history from the
Pennsylvania State Police and Child Abuse History Clearance from the Department
of Human Services. Additionally, a fingerprint based federal criminal
history (FBI) submitted through the Pennsylvania State Police or its authorized
agent is required if the position the volunteer is applying for is a paid
position; and the volunteer has lived outside the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania
in the last 10 years.
