This should be a wake up call to anyone who uses volunteers, child attackers, have used volunteer positions to get into schools and even kids church events. Hospitals have also been targeted in volunteer position scams and cons. Take a look at any positions available for volunteers, make a policy that states all volunteers go through a background check, a good one. If it is a policy that takes away the bad feelings this can cause. It's the policy, nothing we can do about it. The Boy Scouts require it, as well as a two hour training block on how to recognize grooming behavior in other volunteers. They also have strict policies on anyone not a family member being around the kids. It actually is very well done, I would hope churches would follow similar policies.
