Changes to FBI fingerprint criminal background
Licensees who are required to provide
their fingerprints to complete a federal criminal background check should be
aware that this service will be provided by a new supplier. Idemia (formerly
MorphoTrust USA, LLC), will take over the fingerprinting services contract
formerly held by Gemalto (formerly Cogent).

fingerprinted before November 18, must wait until November 28 to receive those
services through the new provider. The only exceptions that will be made during
that time frame 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
For FAQs or additional information on
fingerprinting services, locations or scheduling an appointment, applicants are
