SAFE  ENVIRONMENT 

FULFILLING OUR COMMITMENT TO HEAL AND PROTECT

Safe Environment 

As we patiently go through each day anticipating normalcy

in hopes of COVID – 19 disappearing from our everyday lives,

the reality remains that we need to stay vigilant and alert to the

safety and well being of our parish and school communities.

Our Safe Environment Program is ongoing in spite of the pandemic and will continue to process applications and renewals at all stages.

 

Response to Signs of Abuse

 

 

The Diocese of Tucson under the leadership of Bishop Weisenburger remains committed to protecting our community against all forms of abuse and responding appropriately. The mission of the Diocese of Tucson "Safe Environment Program" is to ensure the safety of children, young people and vulnerable who have been entrusted to our care in our parishes, schools, religious education classes, and other programs.

 We pursue this mission in the following ways:

  • By thoroughly screening and supervising all members of the clergy (priests and deacons), as well as all employees and volunteers who work with children and young people and the vulnerable as part of their ministry.

  • By providing appropriate training in recognizing and reporting child/adult abuse to appropriate civil and Church authorities.

  • By holding all members of the clergy, employees and volunteers who work with children, young people and the vulnerable to Christ-centered and professional codes of conduct.

  • By following Arizona's Mandatory Reporting laws.


 

NOTE: effective July 1, 2020, renewals for high-risk volunteers and employees will be required every three (3) years. Paper requests will no longer be necessary or accepted. Requests for renewal of the criminal history check must be submitted by the individual whose clearance is due to expire, no later than 90 days prior to expiration of the clearance. If an individual’s clearance has expired, the volunteer or employee must re-apply as a new applicant rather than a renewal. This will require the submission of a new fingerprint card for processing, since the Arizona law now requires the submission of a new card for each request. Renewals will not be expedited.
