Criminal Conviction Information

The City of Kirkland is mindful of its obligation to place qualified persons in volunteer positions and its entitlement under law to consider an applicant's conviction record as it relates to assignment performance. A conviction record will not necessarily disqualify you for a volunteer position unless such record would reasonably affect your fitness for the position for which you have applied.


The City of Kirkland now requires a national background check for personnel, contracted with Alliance 2020, a local firm. Via email, you will forthcoming receive a weblink from this company asking you to complete a confidential online background questionnaire. Once you receive it, please complete as soon as possible--the link expires in ten days. It should take about 10-15 minutes.


Have you been convicted of a felony or released from jail within the last ten (10) years, or have you been convicted of a misdemeanor other than minor traffic offenses within the past three (3) years?
