FastFingerprints brings FDLE-approved background checks to Ohio

March 28, 2013 - 

FastFingerprints, a division of National Background Check, Inc., has announced that it will provide customers in Ohio with the opportunity to process Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) approved fingerprint background checks.

“Due to our location and the number of people traveling from Ohio to Florida, we receive regular requests to complete required Florida background checks,” Tina Lapp, FastFingerprints owner said. “It makes perfect sense to offer our approved Florida live scan background check services to residents of Ohio and surrounding states. It’s convenient and gives individuals the peace of mind that their required background check is complete before they travel.”

FastFingerprints will introduce the new system in Ohio on April 1, 2013 .

According to the company, meeting the level 2 live scan background check requirement in the state of Florida means fingerprints will be electronically submitted to FDLE, processed with the FBI and results will be delivered to the requesting state agency. Florida DOH and AHCA applicants are required to have a photograph taken along with their Level 2 live scan background checks.

Fastfingerprints also says it is prepared to offer fingerprint cards to those who seek licensing outside of Florida or Ohio.

Biometrics and background checks have been in the news lately, as reported previously in, American senators John McCain and Chuck Schumer have said their framework for immigration reform could require biometric information to check employment status.

Rawlson King, in a recent op-ed, suggests the U.S. should adopt biometric IDs for Social Security, and says it’s conceivable that the Obama Administration is on-side.
