Accurate Biometrics is the contracted provider for Chicago Park District employees, contractors and volunteers who require State and FBI fingerprint-based background checks.
Applicants directed by the Chicago Park District will need to obtain a valid fingerprint authorization form for fingerprinting from the HR department of the main office of the Chicago Park District. We cannot fingerprint without the original park district fingerprint form.
Accurate Biometrics is a trusted live scan fingerprint provider with nearly 20 years of experience. We offer fast, convenient walk-in service at over 40 locations in Illinois. Let us help you navigate the background check process. If you have any questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
*Price: The cost of fingerprinting is paid for by the Chicago Park District. There is NO cost to you!
