Two facility managers for ChildNet, the agency that runs Broward County’s child welfare system, were fired after being implicated in several thefts at the agency. In the most recent theft, a laptop computer containing personal information on 12,000 ChildNet clients disappeared.

Cracking open its personnel files, ChildNet found background checks on both men showing they were long-time felons with convictions for manslaughter, battery, burglary, larceny, robbery and selling cocaine.

“We did the background checks; the information was given to us,” said Peter Blasaris, president and CEO of ChildNet. “Somehow it got stuck in the files ... for some reason, they were not red-flagged.”

Ah, those personnel files. Get your money’s worth out of all those background checks, and read them before they get “stuck” in your files.
