 Fingerprinting Service Changing in November
This delay will occur between November 18, 2017 and November 28, 2017.
Individuals who are not registered and fingerprinted before November 18 will have to wait until November 28 to receive those services through the new provider. The only exceptions that will be made during that timeframe will be for individuals who have an issue with a fingerprint taken prior to November 18 and will be reprinted by November 27. Those individuals who do not get their reprint by November 27 will need to re-register with the new provider and will have 90 days to get their reprint at no cost.
