Dedham to do Background Checks

Jason Morris

DEDHAM – Following the June arrest of a Department of Parks and Recreation employee, the town is implementing a new policy requiring that all prospective employees undergo criminal background checks.

The arrest of seasonal maintenance worker William Luciano, 38, of 2 Taft St., Walpole, revealed to acting Parks and Recreation Director Bob Stanley that the department had not been uniformly requesting the criminal records of all employees.

Although the town had an informal policy of running background checks, after the arrest and Stanley’s investigation, Town Administrator William Keegan drafted a formal written policy, which the Board of Selectmen unanimously approved during a meeting Thursday.
