Statewide information sessions on background studies law underway

DHS will host a series of information sessions throughout Minnesota that will provide detailed information on the background studies law passed in 2014 (PDF). The new law requires the department to collect fingerprints and a photograph of the background study subject. The law also requires implementation of new software that supports multiple changes designed to improve the accuracy and completeness of background studies. The information sessions will take place in eight locations; no registration is required. Stakeholders who are affiliated with DHS licensed programs are encouraged to attend a session to learn more about the new background studies requirements.
