Volunteer Criminal Background Check Disclosure and Authorization

The Denver Public Library Volunteer Program conducts criminal background checks on applicants for volunteer roles to ensure a prospective volunteer is suitable for a particular DPL volunteer assignment. The criminal background check includes, but is not limited to, records from any criminal justice agency in any federal, state and/or county jurisdictions. Successful completion of the criminal background check is a qualification for all DPL volunteer roles.

I hereby authorize Denver Public Library to obtain my criminal history from its agents. I also authorize that a photocopy, fax, or electronic version of this authorization be accepted with the same authority as the original.

I understand that I have rights under the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (“FCRA”). If I am not selected as a volunteer based upon the criminal background check results, a copy of the report and a summary of the consumer’s rights under the FCRA will be provided to me.

Applicant’s DMV records may be reviewed at any time if the applicant continues to drive in connection with his/her volunteer assignment.

Applicants who have not resided in Colorado for the last 2 years must complete the out-of-state background check form. Forms will be emailed accordingly.
