What is a fingerprint check?

A fingerprint check is usually conducted through a State Bureau of Criminal Identification or The Federal Bureau of Identification to either identify someone or conduct a criminal background check.

These two things differ in that the fingerprint check to identify an individual most likely involves a criminal case, either for identifying a suspect or in the worst case scenario, a victim of a crime. Fingerprints have traditionally been the most commonly used method of identifying an individual but not necessarily the best option when conducting background checks.

Terms to Know

Fingerprint: The impressions and marks on the surface of a person’s fingertips. Since these are unique patterns for each person, fingerprints are used as an identification tool.

Ink Cards: A specific piece of paper used to capture people’s fingerprints by using black ink. This practice was the standard for all fingerprinting until modern times when the electronic fingerprint scanning system was invented.

National WebCheck: A website used by companies to search for criminal records for a background check. This platform is completely electronic and submits an individual’s fingerprints for review at the state and federal levels.

How accurate is a fingerprint check?

While we have all heard the phrase; “No two fingerprints are alike” and that is not the case. Due to variations in the methods used to categorize and collect fingerprint samples, variation and distortions can exist in the samples taken. Statistics widely vary on how accurate manual fingerprinting analysis and identification is; however, computerized fingerprint scanners and identification have become so sophisticated that they were found to be accurate 99% of the time in a study conducted by The Commerce Department’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

What is the difference between the BCI and the FBI fingerprint scans?

A FDLE fingerprint searches only the state of Florida. The FBI is a national database search. You can get either a FDLE, FBI or both depending on the reason for the fingerprinting. Having both the FDLE and the FBI searches completed are especially important for candidates who have lived in another state in the past 5 years or more. A crime could have been committed in another state and if only the state of Ohio is searched, those criminal records could be missed.
