Police Do Away With Legwork For School Background Checks

Faced with a deluge of applications, Alok Kumar, Additional Commissioner of Police, announced that the city police have simplified the procedure of verifying the background of school staff.

After a spate of child sexual abuse cases, the police made it mandatory for teaching and non-teaching staff to produce police no-objection certificates when they seek employment. “Earlier, the police had to visit each home and do their background verification. Now, once we receive an application, we will check our database. If the name does not figure on the list, we will issue a no-objection certificate,” he said. The simplified procedure will help them clear pending applications quickly.
