Manditory because they wanted us all to fill out a 6 page "application" and get fingerprinted by the FDLE (Florida Dept. of Law Enforcement) so they could check our background to see if we had criminal convictions for abusing the elderly or children.
They asked about previous volunteer activities and if we'd ever been asked to leave a volunteer post due to inappropriate behavior, etc.
So they ask all these questions and what happens if you lie? Well it's CYA so they can say "Well we asked and the person wasn't truthful."
In my opinion it's a good first step, but it will accomplish nothing but make the church say they tried.
