Fingerprinting Services for FBI Channeling

We offer the following collection methods for enterprise clients.

Machine Purchase or Lease

Our economical and easy-to-use live scan equipment is the perfect choice for all uses from single users to enterprise enrollment centers. Our system may be compatible with existing live scan hardware with “open” architecture. Live scan machines are very affordable and it may be a better option to purchase or lease equipment than upgrade and reconfigure connectivity to existing systems.

Onsite Fingerprinting Service

For onboarding large groups of applicants for purposes such as acquisition or expansion, Accurate Biometrics is able to come on location (subject to time and travel). We also support executive fingerprint services, providing and assisting in concierge fingerprint service for individuals with critical and demanding schedules.

Fingerprint Card Processing Service

Along with live scan fingerprinting, Accurate Biometrics is able to process FBI FD-258 manual ink cards for all of its clients. Remote locations and international applicants are the key profile for ink card users. We process all ink cards the same day. We are located near Chicago’s O’Hare airport and are supported by all express carriers for daily delivery.

Archiving Service

We are able to store fingerprints and demographic data with appropriate applicant disclosure agreements in place for delayed submission for processing, to regenerate the fingerprint files for multiple submission, compliance and licensing, or to update criminal history background checks.

How to Get Started

  • Contact Accurate Biometrics to help you navigate the process

  • The FBI must approve a request from your agency or organization. This is done by your agency or organization submitting a letter to the FBI Compact Officer with specific details on fingerprints requested by your agency or organization.

  • Once approved, your agency or organization would enter into a user agreement with Accurate Biometrics acknowledging adherence to the FBI CJIS “Outsourcing Standards”.

  • Accurate Biometrics would work with you to set up a direct connection to enable channeling to/from the FBI.

  • The fingerprint process may then begin, and results are disseminated back to Accurate Biometrics for immediate transmission back to the customer (Authorized Recipient).

  • We respond to the needs of our customers with knowledge, expertise, urgency, and a professionalism that positions us as a leader in the industry of applicant fingerprint processing.
