Rule Rule 413-015-1105


The primary purposes of LEDS access in local Child Welfare offices are to assist staff in making decisions about safety, specifically related to child protective services, assessing safety service providers, and emergency certification as outlined in these rules (OAR 413-015-1100 (Authority and Responsibility) to 413-015-1125 (LEDS Use for Certification Purposes in Emergency Situations)). Criminal history information obtained from LEDS will be considered, along with other safety-related information, to:


Identify present danger safety threats and impending danger safety threats; or


Determine if behavior that is revealed by criminal history is inconsistent with providing care to children or having access to children.
(2) These rules do not address criminal records checks for non-emergency certification or adoption approval. Criminal records checks for non-emergency certification or adoption approval are governed by OAR 413-120-0400 (Purpose) to 413-120-0470.
