RAPTOR DATABASE CHECKS
Trail Point Aquatics & Wellness uses Raptor Management System to strengthen the safety of our members. Part of keeping members safe is knowing who is in our buildings at all times, and the Raptor system will allow us to do that. The Raptor system allows us to screen Trail Point members and guests to provide a safer environment for our members and staff.
The Raptor system checks the member’s or visitor's name and date of birth for comparison with a national database of registered sex offenders. The registered sex offender database is the only official database checked by the Raptor system.
No other data from the ID is gathered or recorded and the information is not shared with any outside agency.
Upon entering or joining Trail Point, members and guests will be asked to present an ID such as a Driver’s License, which can either be scanned or manually entered into the system. If a guest for any reason does not have a US government-issued ID, the Trail Point staff member can use any form of identification and manually enter the person’s name into the Raptor system. The Raptor system will check to ensure that registered sexual offenders are not entering our facility without our knowledge.
Safety of our members is our highest priority and this process allows us to quickly identify those that may present a danger. Thank you in advance for your understanding and your support in enhancing the safety protocols at Trail Point Aquatics & Wellness.
What is the Raptor Visitor Management System?
Raptor is a visitor and volunteer management system that enhances security as well as the ability to efficiently track and maintain member and vistor records electronically. Each and every visitor is instantly screened against the registered sex offender databases in all 50 states. The Raptor system also ensures that accurate and reliable records are kept for every visitor that enters the school building, every day.
How does Raptor work?
All visitors will be asked to present a government issued ID to be scanned in to Raptor upon entering a school building. Name, photo, and date of birth from visitor ID’s are instantly compared against the national sex offender registry.
If a match is found, Trail Point leadership is notified through an alert message so as to take appropriate actions to keep the Trail Point safe.
There is an appeal process, depending on the level of offense, members on the list may be able to join or keep their membership.
When an alert message is sent out, what information is contained within?
The alert message includes the offender’s name, photo and school building check-in location, as well as the name of the Raptor user assisting with the check in.
What other information is Raptor taking from ID’s?
Raptor is only scanning and storing the visitor’s name, date of birth and photo for comparison with the national sex offender registry. Additional visitor data will not be gathered and no data will be shared with any outside company or organization.
Does Raptor gather any other background information from outside of the sex offender registries?
No. Raptor only checks the national sex offender registry, which is updated weekly. However, the school buildings have the ability to create Private Alerts for no-contact orders, no-trespassing orders, etc.
Will a visitor have to present a photo ID before every visit to the school building?
No. In order to become a registered visitor in Raptor, the visitor will need to present a government issued ID at the first initial visit. Subsequent visits will not require presentation of an ID but will require the visitor to simply check in through Raptor. At each check in, the visitor is being screened against the national sex offender registry.
