Criminal Background Check Information

DCBS has been conducting employment-related, criminal background checks (CBC) since November 2008. Because of the job duties, some DCBS positions require a criminal background check. For questions about the types of positions requiring a criminal background check (subject positions), see the resources listed below. Individuals applying for subject positions will complete a fingerprint-based criminal background check. DCBS employees applying for subject positions will also complete a fingerprint-based criminal background check if they are applying for a promotion, transfer, voluntary demotion, or job rotations lasting longer than 10 days.

Recruiting announcements posted for positions subject to criminal background checks will include a statement that employment will be contingent upon the passing of a fingerprint-based criminal background check.
