Background Check Investigations for ALL VOLUNTEERS

Our Parent Volunteers are an interracial part of Tiverton Middle School's efforts each and everyday. Learn about ways that you can join our volunteers in making Tiverton Middle School a great place for our students to achieve their highest potential. For your convenience, Background Check Investigation (BCI) paperwork is available online at:  https://docs.wixstatic.com/ugd/1bb048_6db32e3eaeb34be48f714d68f5a71c8d.pdf. The Tiverton Police Department (TPD) conducts the BCI on Tuesdays from 9:00 A.M. to 11:00 AM and is located at 20 Industrial Way in Tiverton. BCI paperwork costs $5.00 at the time of service. TPD accepts cash, money order or a check (made payable to Tiverton Police Department). The TPD now requires a letter of intent for all volunteers on formal letterhead of any organization that will be requiring the BCI. Please see any of our administrative staff to obtain a letter from one of our principals. TPD also requires a valid state or federal Identification card that includes your date of birth. Once your BCI is submitted to a member of our central office team, your BCI on file is considered valid through the next four years by the Tiverton School District. A current BCI is required to be on file at our central office, BEFORE volunteering anywhere within the Tiverton School District. 

More information regarding the TPD BCI procedures is available at https://www.tivertonpoliceri.com/state-background-checks or call their non-emergency number at 401-625-6717 and press 1 when prompted.

As an additional option, the Rhode Island District Attorney's office conducts BCI's as well. All in-person state and national background checks will ONLY be available at their new Customer Service Center located at 4 Howard Avenue in Cranston (located in the Pastore Center).

Background checks will no longer be available at the Providence office. For questions, please call 401-274-4400 or visit their website at http://www.riag.ri.gov/homeboxes/BackgroundChecks.php.
