Parks and Recreation Background Check - Operation TLC2

Operation TLC² Making Communities Safe is the original volunteer management and background screening program of the National Recreation and Park Association designed to first qualify volunteers then prepare them for public service.

Operation TLC² Recommended Guidelines for Background Screening Volunteers define the specific components for a comprehensive national criminal background check system consistently applicable in every state, for every agency, across the park, recreation, and conservation landscape.


As an Operation TLC² agency you will receive:

  • Operation TLC² Making Communities Safe full-service national background checks at the preferred price of $18.50 each.
  • Results with full case disposition in 48 to 72 hours.
  • FREE Operation TLC² Making Communities Safe Orientation and Training Toolkit.
  • Access to purchase customized photo identification badges, or manufacturing equipment and materials at a preferred price.

Why is SSCI more effective than other providers

SSCI goes beyond a national database for an in-depth investigation that most providers do not offer. If the cost of the background check is $15 or less or the results are instantaneous, it is most likely a database-only screening. Database-only checks are substandard in the field of Parks and Recreation and do not meet the test of due diligence in the court of law.
