Chess Master Arrested

How do you know that your chess coach is trustworthy? Does he have a criminal background? Perhaps it's an idea that any coaching accreditation system should include some sort of police clearance. Just a thought.

Today, US chess master and coach, Robert Snyder was arrested by Colorado police on charges of "sexual assault".

Actually it is the responsibility of the employer (whether school or parent) to ensure that coaches they employ have passed police checks. There is no need for formal bodies conducting coaching accreditation to get involved in this process.
