This is a case we often talk about in our offices. Bill applied for a SafetyPIN in mid-June. From the beginning, there was something about his application and information that concerned us, but we couldn’t put our finger on it at first. It certainly didn’t help that he called customer service almost every day to ask about the status of his SafetyPIN. That made us especially suspicious.
After digging deeper, we discovered that he had two old, but still pending charges for sexual assault of two different minors, ages 13 and 16. His court date was scheduled for July 1! We believe that Bill was trying to get approved for a SafetyPIN before he faced a conviction.
We declined his application and he appealed. When we told him what we saw pending on his record, he never replied. The scariest part? He was trying to join one of our babysitting partners. What’s worse is that because of the unique circumstances – the charges were more than 7 years old, he was charged outside of his county of residence, and the charges hadn’t been decided yet… Many other background check methods would have completely missed – or had to ignore – what we uncovered! SafetyPIN and appeal – denied
A SafetyPIN is a digital trust badge that shows an individual has met all the requirements developed by a team of experts in law enforcement and criminal behavior. Every screening includes a broader, more expansive criminal background check, an ID verification, a financial history screening, and the proprietary Beacon Behavioral Review.
When you see a verified SafetyPIN, you know the individual has met our strict requirements – and remains in good standing. SafetyPIN Technologies is committed to treating everyone with fairness and respect. Therefore, anyone not awarded a SafetyPIN can rest assured that their application, personal information, and the outcome are kept completely confidential.

Most background checks only screen the “National Criminal Database,” which excludes 22 states completely, and leaves out a LOT of counties across 12 other states. Better background checks will screen down to the county someone lives in, and, in some cases, the counties they’ve lived in for the past 7 years. But we know criminals don’t stop at the county line – so neither do we.
Forty-year-old Phoebe was applying to be a house-sitter. Our review showed she’d been arrested for shoplifting when she was 33. That’s a little too old to write-off as a youthful indiscretion. When our experts asked Phoebe for more details, her answers became defensive and she refused to explain any circumstances around her arrest. Most background checks would overlook a single
Allison had an active SafetyPIN and was arrested for driving under the influence. As soon as we saw it, we suspended her SafetyPIN while we waited for a final outcome. Almost a year later, she informed us she “will be receiving a Probation Before Judgment in a few months.” That essentially means the court found that she did it, but they are willing to give her a second chance if she doesn’t get charged again over a
