The city of Idaho Falls is considering a new law that would require door to door salesmen to get sales permits. Before they can get these permits, however, they would be required to undergo background checks. This is in direct response to the fact that a traveling salesmen was recently charged with sexual assault and burglary crimes in the city. It is hoped that these permits and background checks will help to eliminate the chances of this happening in the future. The importance public safety in this instance is the top priority.
If this ordinance would have been passed last year, the traveling salesman who was charged with those crimes listed above would have not passed, so he would have not been allowed to work within the city limits. Should this city ordinance pass, one way that the city of Idaho Falls could perform these checks would be to hire a third party background check company like backgroundchecks.com. This company has several products like their Multi-State OneSEARCH which could search for criminal records in Idaho, as well as information from four surrounding states. This would give a great overview of the region and could help keep the city of Idaho Falls safer.
