Background Consent Form
There will be a new process by which we will administer the Henry County Parks and Recreation background check for all individuals that interact with the children in Henry County Parks and Recreation programs. This new process will become effective on Tuesday, 6 July, 2010. The new form is listed here as well as in the Handout section where you will see the newly updated Background Check Application and the new page 2 instruction sheet that should be printed on the back of the application and thus becoming a 2 sided document. This document supersedes all other Background Check Applications and become effective on 6 July, 2010.
The reasons for the change are that we have had several associates responsible for maintaining the background checks for the various programs within the County. This made it difficult to manage and monitor. With this new process, the management will fall under one office within the Recreation Department. In addition, the new process will allow for all too physically see the individuals on the field or in the venue that have had his/her background check completed. We can grandfather all cleared applicants from 15 January to present and issue photo ID cards with an expiration date 1 year from issue up until 1 August. The Recreation facilities on line for issue are Henry County Parks and Recreation main office at Heritage Park and J.P. Moseley Recreation Center from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM at both locations Monday through Friday. A brief outline of the changes is below.
* The updated application had additional instructions on the front and an additional field for an Email address. * A requirement that all fields be filled in before the application will be accepted and processed including correct contact information. * The inclusion of detailed instructions printed on the back of the application with a field for initials and date. * The issuance of a photo ID card after the application has been processed that will have a mandatory carry rule at all venues and be an inspected item at all fields, venues, or official functions with children present. * A $5.00 charge for the photo ID card with an expiration date 1 year from the issue date. * Currently we will have 2 Parks and Recreation facilities able to issue the photo ID card with 2 additional sites coming on line before the end of the year.
As we move to implement this new process, we ask for your help in making this transition as smooth as possible. Once this process is fully implemented, we can be assured that the children of Henry County are even more protected and safer than ever before.

Henry Co. Bans Smoking in parks
Thinking about smoking a cigarette in a Henry County park? Think again.
The Henry County Commission Monday passed an ordinance that makes inhaling, exhaling, burning or carrying a lit cigar, cigarette, pipe,or any other combustible substance illegal in any of Henry's 27 parks.
The ordinance passed unanimously and takes effect immediately.
Citing concerns over second-hand smoke, commissioners said the ordinance is to protect the health, safety and welfare of the county's residents.
Commissioners also said potential fire damage to the county's 1,200 acres of parks is also a concern.
Signs will soon be posted in each park to notify residents of the new ordinance.
