Safe Environment Policy and Procedure

The Diocesan Policy and Procedure for the Protection of minors requires all clergy, employees, volunteers of ministry, and minors to attend training on an annual basis.

In the Diocese of Tucson all volunteers must complete "Safe Environment Training Initial Education" as a foundation course for Safe Environment.

In this program Clergy, employees, and Volunteers learn myths and facts about sexual abuse and sexual offenders. They learn detailed warning signs to watch for in adults who may abuse, and how to identify children who may have been abused. Clergy, employees, and volunteers learn specific steps to take in screening, guidelines for interaction, monitoring, training and responding. To keep ministries safe, standards must be met in parishes, schools, youth events,-anywhere there are children or vulnerable adults.

Requirement Process

In additional to training everyone is required to complete a Volunteer Application and Code of Ethics, and be finger-printed.

Per Bishop Weisenburger, all employees and volunteers, regardless of position, are required to undergo high-level security clearance and safe-environment training to ensure the protection of minors and vulnerable adults.
