“California law authorizes certain governmental and private organizations to conduct criminal record background checks to help determine the suitability of a person applying for a license, employment or as a volunteer working with children, the elderly or disabled. Law enforcement agencies, public and private schools, non-profit organizations and in-home supportive care agencies are some of the agencies authorized to conduct fingerprint background checks.
During the 2007-08 fiscal year, the DOJ processed almost 1.8 million applicant fingerprint transactions. Eighty percent of the electronically submitted fingerprint checks are completed within three business days.
Below is the basic information an agency needs to get authorization to submit fingerprints.” AMERITEK ID will be happy to assist you with your application or provide you with further information.
