Important Safety News

July 25, 2016

The safety of the children who use our facility has always been a top priority of the Sussex County YMCA.

Technology has now evolved that provides instant screenings for registered sex offenders in all 50 states. Raptor, a leading web-based platform identifies unwanted visitors instantly by scanning driver’s licenses and state-issued ID’s and keeps unwanted guests from entering our YMCA. If a potential threat is identified, the Raptor system will send an instant alert to designated management staff. If necessary, law enforcement will be notified.

Beginning in May, our staff will begin using the Raptor system. All members and visitors will have their drivers’ licenses or state-issued ID scanned.

We appreciate your continued support in protecting all the children who come to our Y.
