Jurisdictional police verification of School Staff checks for criminal/civil records of a candidate to reduce legal liability for negligent hiring and ensures a safe school environment for children.
According to the CBSE’s circular CBSE/AFFI/SCHOOLSAFETY/19 dated 12th Sept 2017, it is mandatory for all schools to conduct police verification of their entire staff – teachers, non-teaching employees, blue collar including housekeeping, security guards, bus drivers, conductors etc.
Police verification involves checking records at the office of the Commissioner of Police or the Superintendent of Police, along with records at the local police station, as applicable, based on the candidate’s stated and permanent address and local regulations. Ideally, police verification should be conducted for all addresses at which a candidate has resided in the past, to ensure that the candidate isn’t trying to hide his history by changing locations.
