It’s the only authorized screening program of in-home caregivers in the state with access to fingerprint records at the California Department of Justice and the FBI. It’s the LAW for nanny agencies to send you nannies that are either cleared or in process of Trustline. We recommend that that you check the Trustline of any nanny that works in your home permanently or on call.
