We conduct background checks on our sitters with their permission before allowing them to sign up on our system and begin babysitting
This check is done through the Automated Fingerprint Identification Service (AFIS) - the database that is queried during the criminal check.
Fingerprints are manually scanned and processed at a local SAPS police station through the SAPS91(a) form.
This process can take up to 6-8 weeks to return results. WeSit evaluates the nature of the record accordingly before onboarding.
Police clearance certificates are fraud-proof official documents stating whether or not any criminal convictions have been recorded against any person. It can take up to 3 weeks to receive this certificate.
