All short-term visitors will use the new system. This includes families, volunteers, community partners, contractors and vendors. Visitors will be asked to show a driver’s license or government-issued ID to the office staff. The office staff person will quickly scan the ID into the system, which will look at the name, date of birth, photo and last four digits of the ID for comparison with a national database of registered sex offenders. It will not save other information from the ID or make a copy of the physical ID. Once visitors are entered in the system, they can scan their own ID in the future.
Staff will return IDs after the initial scan.
