Criminal Background Checks Aren’t Enough

Because most acts of child and teen sexual abuse are never reported to the police, criminal background checks are largely ineffective at identifying individuals who may have already sexually abused a child. In fact, ChoicePoint reported looking at over 3.5 million background checks and finding only 0.2% that could be identified as sexual offenders. In contrast to background checks, The Diana Screen® does not rely on public records or criminal histories. The Diana Screen® methodology provides much more effective results.

Using The Diana Screen® accomplishes the following:

  • Helps identify men and women who are most likely to cross sexual boundaries with children and teens, it helps to reduce adult on child sexual misconduct
  • Acts as a deterrent
  • Helps agencies select the safest adults to work with children and teens by forming a safer pool of prospective hires and volunteers
