What is electronic fingerprinting?
Electronic fingerprinting allows you to have your fingerprints scanned and electronically submitted to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and Federal Bureau of Investigation. Electronic fingerprinting reduces the likelihood of illegible fingerprints, missing information on the fingerprint card or the chance of the fingerprint card not being received in a timeframe that will ensure an efficient application process.
