Northern Community Mediation

Background Checks

All staff members, volunteer mediators and interns for Northern Community Mediation (NCM) must undergo a twofold background check. The Internet Criminal History Access Tool (ICHAT) is done through the Michigan State Police. The Central Registry Clearance is run through the Department of Human Services (DHS).

In order for NCM to run these background checks, personnel must sign a consent form, complete the Criminal Registry form, and provide a copy of their driver's license.
