The fingerprints and photo that are captured by the technician at the
fingerprinting Kiosk are sent to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement
(FDLE). The FDLE then sends the fingerprints
to the FBI for processing. The results are then disseminated
back to the Florida Department of Health Clearinghouse. Once the results are
received from FDLE, the average processing time for
clearance is approximately 3-5 business days.
You will receive an email providing you with a Transaction Control Number (TCN)
that verifies your live scan submission has been processed. The TCN number can
be given to the company that is requesting the background check as it will help
them track results. IMPORTANT: Please save your TCN number for reference.
