Hello, We have moved to Georgia (Atlanta!) and don't understand the process for how to check the background of our nanny applicants! WE are w/in city of Atlanta borders. We have applicants and want to run their background checks but can't for the life of us figure out how to do it in Georgia - very hard! Has anyone managed to do a background check for a person working with children? We don't need any state (national) outside of Ga done, the girls have all lived in Ga their whole lives and we just wish to find state criminal info if any. Thanks!

Perhaps you could go to the Atlanta Police Department. I have to obtain one for my real estate license a couple of years ago and obtained one through the police department.

APD FAQs (scroll down to the bottom)

BTW - if the background report is blank - that is a good thing

You want what is called a GCIC check (it includes not only convictions, but all arrests in Georgia). You'll need to have them go to the police station and get it, or have them sign a release allowing you to make the request. Last I checked, Roswell P.D. charged $15 for this service.

You can also obtain a Felony Conviction Record - without their consent, but is less comprehensive.

Good luck!
