  • On who? The people that get reported? I know they do for foster homes.

  • For what, for employees?? I think they do if you want a job with them.

    Can you be more specific?

  • OP here: when they investigate someone who has had cps called on them.

  • I am fairly sure they do... to see if there's a history of that sort of thing. For example if your kids teacher reports you for bruising or spanking and you have a record for assaults, bar fights, etc, they'll examine you much closer and not brush it off as quickly.

    Similarly if someone reports you for something financially motivated like prostitution, baby smuggling, etc etc and they run your financial records and see you're 6 months behind on the mortgage and filed bankruptcy more times than Heinz has pickles, they'll look further and further and closer and closer
