Division on Licensing Background Screening

Fingerprinting for “D” Security License and “C” Private Investigator License in Florida

Per Florida Statute 493, the Division of Licensing of the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services is responsible for security officers (“D” License) and private investigator licensing (“C” License) in Florida . Background screening is a part of license application, and it is conducted by submitting the set of fingerprints for FBI Level 2 Background Check. Submission can be made by hard copy or via live scan vendors approved by FDLE and DOACS.

 

During D license application processing the Division of Licensing will request an examination of fingerprint records and police records. When a criminal history analysis of any applicant under chapter 439 is performed by means of fingerprint card identification, the time limitations prescribed by s. 120.60(1) shall be tolled during the time the applicant’s fingerprint card is under review by the Department of Law Enforcement or the United States Department of Justice, Federal Bureau of Investigation.

 

If a legible set of fingerprints, as determined by the Department of Law Enforcement or the Federal Bureau of Investigation, cannot be obtained after two attempts, the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services may determine the applicant’s eligibility based upon a criminal history record check under the applicant’s name conducted by the Department of Law Enforcement and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. A set of fingerprints taken by a law enforcement agency and a written statement signed by the fingerprint technician or a licensed physician stating that there is a physical condition that precludes obtaining a legible set of fingerprints or that the fingerprints taken are the best that can be obtained is sufficient to meet this requirement.

Electronic Fingerprint Submissions for Individuals and Agencies Licensed Under Chapter 493, Florida Statutes

If you are applying for a license in the Private Investigative Industry, Recovery Industry, or Security Industry under the authority of Chapter 493, Florida Statutes, the following questions and answers will help guide you through the process of submitting your fingerprints electronically.

 

Please read this material carefully in its entirety. Take note that the procedure to follow in getting your fingerprints scanned and in submitting payment for the electronic fingerprint submission will depend upon where you go to get your prints taken. In the material on this site we have tried to spell out in detail the options available to you and the procedures to follow depending upon the option you select.

 

If you have any questions or need additional clarification, please call our Public Inquiry Section at 850-245-5691.

 

Q. Where can I get my fingerprints digitally scanned?

A: Applicants for an individual or agency license issued under the authority of Chapter 493, Florida Statutes, have a number of options as to where they can get their fingerprints taken. The options are enumerated below:

We strongly recommend you telephone your sheriff’s office in advance to confirm that particular office provides electronic fingerprint scanning services and to reserve an appointment time if one is necessary.
  • OPTION 1. Many of Florida’s 67 county sheriffs offer electronic fingerprinting services.
  • OPTION 2. You can have your fingerprints scanned at any one of our seven Regional Offices of Division of Licensing.
  • OPTION 3. There is also a small group of private vendors such as IDENTICO LLC that provide electronic fingerprinting services.
The documentation you receive when you get your fingerprints scanned will vary depending upon which option you select. Generally, however, the technician scanning your prints will give you some sort of RECEIPT and/or a PHOTOCOPY of your fingerprints upon completion of the scan.Please keep these documents. They contain your Transaction Control Number, which is needed if you pay for the fingerprinting service on line, rather than at the sheriff’s office or the private vendor. Also, copies of the documents should be submitted with your application.

 

Q. What is the cost of the electronic fingerprint submission?

  • OPTION 1. The fee for having your prints scanned at one of Division of Licensing Regional Offices is $42.
  • OPTION 2. The fee for your prints scanned at IDENTICO LLC is $48.25. No lines, No appointments, No government, No Bureaucracy.

(If you submit your fingerprints directly to Division of Licensing using the traditional “hard-card” fingerprint method along with payment for the fingerprint processing, the cost for the fingerprint submission is $42.)

 

Q. How do I submit payment for my electronic fingerprint submission?

  • OPTION 1. The Regional Division of Licensing Office where you have your fingerprints scanned can accept payment for this service.
  • OPTION 2. You can pay cash, credit card or with check at IDENTICO’s office after being fingerprinted.
The RECEIPT that the fingerprint technician gave you will include a Transaction Control Number (TCN) and your name. (The TCN will begin with 70SX, 70LX, 70SO, or 70C and be followed by a number that will consist of as many as 18 digits.

Q. What do I submit to the Division of Licensing after I have submitted payment?

A: Submit any RECEIPTS you have been given along with your application. If you were given a PHOTOCOPY of the electronic fingerprint submission, submit that  as well. Please be sure that you include all the documentation specified in the instructions included with your application package (completed application, passport-style color photograph, training documentation, proof of insurance, appropriate licensing fees, etc.).

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION WHEN SUBMITTING YOUR APPLICATIONRemember that you do not have to submit any additional payment for the electronic fingerprint scan. You need only submit payment for the LICENSE FEEand APPLICATION FEE (if you are applying for a Class “D” Security Officer license or a Class “G” Statewide Firearm license you are not required to pay an APPLICATION FEE).You should submit your application to the Division of Licensing WITHIN 90 DAYS of your fingerprint-scan to avoid inconvenience and additional expense. Be sure to include the following items with your application: photocopies of your fingerprint scan and all receipts (including the CWCS receipt), a photograph, training documentation and a check or money order for the license fee. 

 

 

 

 

Here is how the 90-day time limit can spare you additional expense and inconvenience. The Federal Bureau of Investigation will allow TWO FINGERPRINT SUBMISSIONS for the fee remitted if both submissions occur within 180 days. If a problem occurs with your first fingerprint submission AND we do not receive your application until after 90 days has passed, we may not have adequate time in which to analyze the problem and notify you so that you can submit a second set of fingerprints within the 180-day time frame. In this circumstance, we would have no alternative but to require you to have your fingerprints scanned again, and this would require the payment of an additional fingerprint fee.
