CRIMINAL RECORD CHECK
A. Each applicant for an original license or certificate for a family care home, or original license for a center, facility, or agency and any adult who resides in the licensed or certified facility must submit to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) a complete set of fingerprints taken by a qualified law enforcement agency to obtain any criminal record held by the CBI. Payment of the fee for the criminal record check is the responsibility of the individual being checked or the home, center, facility, or agency.
B. In the case of resident camp programs and school-age child care facilities operating fewer than 90 consecutive days each calendar year, persons employed fewer than 90 days who are under 23 years of age are not required to be fingerprinted to obtain a criminal record check. This exemption does not include any person hired as the nurse or medical professional for the program or any person hired beyond the initial year of employment. Each person exempted from fingerprinting must sign a statement which affirmatively states that she/he has not been convicted of any charge of child abuse, unlawful sexual offense, or any felony, and which grants to the employer permission to obtain a copy of the employee's criminal record. No person is exempted from the search of the Central Registry required under 7.701.32, above.
C. At the time the annual declaration of compliance is submitted to the Department, a criminal record check is required only for adults living at the licensed facility who have not previously obtained one. Applicants, licensees, and persons who live in the licensed facility who have previously obtained a criminal record check are not required to obtain additional criminal record checks.
D. Each adult (18 or over) hired by a facility or agency must submit to CBI a complete set of fingerprints to obtain any criminal record held by the CBI. Payment of the fee for the criminal record check is the responsibility of the individual being checked or the facility or agency. The results of the criminal record check must be maintained at the home, center, facility, or agency and must be available for review upon request by a licensing specialist.
