It is very empowering for people in the greater Boston African community to be able to access programs in their native language, to hear from community role models, to witness their culture showcased: Bump and state lawmakers on Wednesday called on EEC to implement the address check in response to the audit that initially found that addresses of registered sex offenders matched locations of licensed child-care programs. EEC officials believe no children were harmed at any of the locations investigated. The auditor also found that EEC was not enforcing Criminal Offender Record Information, or CORI, check requirements, and failed to ensure that licensed child-care providers performed the required CORI checks on their staff when they were hired, as well as rechecked them every three years. EEC officials then investigated and discovered 54 sex offenders' addresses overlapped with child-care providers, according to EEC.

Lawmakers commended the move and the auditor's report that led to the changes. A sex crime is an illegal act that refers to forced sexual conduct against a person.
