Background checks 2016

P.W.C.O. is proud to announce that the City of Pembroke Pines is making it mandatory for ALL Optimist Parks make their volunteers do background checks at a higher scale. This will ensure that all our kids are being coached and mentored with saftey in our park.

The City of Pembroke Pines is starting the Level II background check process this week. The fee will be paid directly to the City of Pembroke Pines in the amount of $31.50. There are several options for our coaches and parent volunteers to take a background check:


-          The Pembroke Pines Police Department will conduct background checks for Pasadena Walnut Creek Optimist Club on Saturday, August 6th between 10am and 2pm at the Pasadena Park Clubhouse located at 8815 Pasadena Blvd.

-          The Pembroke Pines Police Department will take walk-in background checks on Tuesdays between 9am and 5pm at the police station located at 9500 Pines Blvd.

-          Scheduled appointments at the Pembroke Pines Police Department can be made by calling the Background Check Department at 954-431-2705.
