Applicants for Florida State Agencies Level 2 Background Check Clearance can use any Livescan vendor that has been approved by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to submit their fingerprints to the department. Please ensure that the Originating Agency Identification (ORI) number is provided to the vendor when you submit your fingerprints. If you do not provide an ORI number or if you provide an incorrect ORI number to the vendor, the requesting regulatory agency will not receive your fingerprint results. The applicants are fully responsible for selecting the vendor, and IDENTICO– FDLE approved live scan vendor can assist you with determination that submission of the fingerprints is made to the proper state agency.

 

1. How do I find a Livescan vendor in order to submit my fingerprints to the department?
If you are reading this post, you already found one. IDENTICO is FDLE approved livescan vendor, but for the list of livescan vendors near you please visit

 

http://www.fdle.state.fl.us/Content/getdoc/941d4e90-131a-45ef-8af3-3c9d4efefd8e/Livescan-Service-Providers-and-Device-Vendors.aspx#Service_Providers.

 

2.What information must I provide to the Livescan vendor I choose?
a) If you are an applicant seeking a level 2 clearance with AHCA, DCF, DOEA or applying for license for any profession regulated by the Department of Business and Professional Regulation, which requires a criminal background search as a condition of licensure, you must provide accurate demographic information at the time your fingerprints are taken, including your Social Security number. AHCA, DCF, DBPR and most other state agencies will not be able to process the submission that does not include your Social Security number (except for DBPR Liquor & Tobacco license applicants that are not citizens of the United States).
b) Please make sure that you clearly identify the profession or Agency whose clearance or license you are seeking and submit your fingerprints payment to the live scan vendor. Any inaccurate information that you provide could cause a delay in processing your request.
c) You must provide the correct ORI number

 

3. Where do I get the ORI number to submit to the vendor?
Requesting state agency shall provide you with ORI# number, but in most cases we in IDENTICO have the correct ORI# numbers for the required submission.
FDLE will only retain the criminal results from applicants for a period of six months from the date the fingerprints were rolled. Applicants for DBPR should submit their applications soon after submitting their fingerprints in order to afford themselves an opportunity to resolve any application deficiencies prior to the expiration of the criminal history results.

 

4. How does the electronic fingerprinting process actually work?
In the traditional method of fingerprinting, ink is applied to each of your fingers which are then “rolled” across a fingerprint card to obtain your prints. With electronic fingerprinting also known as live scan fingerprinting, there is no ink or card. Your fingerprints are “rolled” across a glass plate and scanned. It is faster and cleaner than the traditional method. Electronic fingerprinting reduces the likelihood of illegible fingerprints and will reduce the overall application processing time.

 

5. How long will it take to have my fingerprints scanned?
It should only take approximately 5-10 minutes.

 

6. How much does electronic fingerprinting cost?
The total fee charged by each vendor varies. Please contact IDENTICO to obtain this information or visit

http://myidentico.com/fbi-screening.html

for the price list. The fingerprint results are usually received by the requesting state agency in two to four days after your fingerprints are scanned.

 

7. What do I need to bring with me to the Florida electronic fingerprinting site?
All applicants will be required to bring two (2) forms of identification to the electronic fingerprinting site on the day of fingerprinting. One of the two types of identification must bear your picture and signature such as a driver’s license, state identification card or passport.

 

8. I submitted my fingerprint through an FDLE approved vendor, but I have now received a deficiency letter regarding my fingerprints or my employer did not receive any results of my screening? What should I do?

As of the date of the mailing of the deficiency letter, your electronic fingerprinting results have not been transmitted to requesting agency or were submitted with information not matching you application with employer or information on file at licensing agency. Don’t take a chance and don’t use the questionable vendors. Contact few vendors with your questions and see whether customer service is knowledgeable, speaks your language, and can guarantee the timely and correct submission. IDENTICO should be the vendor of your choice, feel free to ask for our referrals, credentials or experience. Call us today (954) 239-8590 or visit our official page at www.myidentico.com

 

9. What should I do if I am notified by regulatory state agency that the Florida Department of Law Enforcement or the Federal Bureau of Investigation determined my electronic fingerprints were illegible?
The electronic fingerprint scanning machines are equipped to determine if your fingerprints scanned successfully; however, if it is determined by the Federal Bureau of Investigation that your prints were not legible, regulatory state agency will send you a notification letter asking you to go back to the same vendor that did your initial prints and schedule a re-roll of your prints. You will be required to bring the notification letter with you as information such as the TCN (Transaction Control Number) and TCR (Transaction Control Reference) must be identified and used at the time of the reroll. There  re-roll of your fingerprints is free at IDENTICO when you provide the TCR# number.

 

10. How long are my fingerprints valid for?
Each Florida agency retain the results of prints for a various time frame. The clearance with AHCA, DCF or APD is valid for 5 years, and re-screening is required every 5 years. DBPR will retain the results of the prints for 24 months (12 months for Real Estate/Real Estate Appraisers) from the date your digital fingerprints were electronically received by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. FDLE retains the prints for 180 days only. If your prints have expired at the time your application is submitted to the licensing agency, you will be required to submit new prints again.

 

11. Can I use my recent prints to apply for another professional license?
Your prints cannot be shared between professions or with other agencies. You are required to have separate prints for each license you are applying for.

Sincrely,

The team of IDENTICO LLC.

In recent years, the demand for fingerprint-based background checks for noncriminal justice purposes has increased. Fingerprinting agencies and contractors alike have expressed concern that applicants with a criminal history record may have someone pose as the applicant for fingerprinting purposes. In response to these concerns, the FBI prepared guidelines for voluntary use in the development of policy, procedures, and practices for applicant identity verification. As FDLE approved Live Scan vendor IDENTICO LLC had implemented the majority of guidelines in our operation policies.

 

Our policies:

 

1. Since the Florida state repository (FDLE) manages the processing of fingerprint submissions to the FBI, we have ascertained that appropriate coordination and liaison with FDLE is established at that level as a preliminary step toward an applicant identity verification program.

 

2. Each of our fingerprinting technicians went through extensive 2 week long training in the capture of fingerprints (rolled or flats, and electronic or manual)

 

3. Each of our fingerprinting technicians went through extensive 2 week long training before performing duties under the scope of the identity verification program, which may include recognizing and validating authorized identification forms, identification documents, and source documents for identity confirmation. Special training is intended for employees to learn how to recognize fraudulent or counterfeit documents.

 

4. IDENTICO accepts only current and valid picture identification documents. As a primary form of picture identification, a state-issued driver’s license which meets the requirements of Public Law 109-13 may be presented by an applicant when being fingerprinted. However, in the absence of the driver’s license, for those applicants without a driver’s license, a state identification card may be presented if the state’s identification card standards are the same as for the driver’s license.

 

Applicants may provide one or more secondary documents including:

• State Government Issued Certificate of Birth
• U.S. Active Duty/Retiree/Reservist Military Identification Card (000 10-2)
• U.S. Passport
• Federal Government Personal Identity Verification Card (PIV)
• Department of Defense Common Access Card
• U.S. Tribal or Bureau of Indian Affairs Identification Card
• Social Security Card (Required by most regulating Florida State agencies for submission)
• Court Order for Name Change/Gender Change/Adoption/Divorce
• Marriage Certificate (Government Certificate Issued)
• U.S. Government Issued Consular Report of Birth Abroad
• Foreign Passport with Appropriate Immigration Document(s)
• Certificate of Citizenship (N560)
• Certificate of Naturalization (N550)
• INS I-551 Resident Alien Card Issued Since 1997
• INS 1-688 Temporary Resident Identification Card
• INS I-688B, I-766 Employment Authorization Card

 

When validating the authenticity of secondary identification documents and forms, the data and information may be supported by at least two of the following:
• Utility Bill (Address)
• Jurisdictional Voter Registration Card
• Vehicle Registration Card/Title
• Paycheck Stub with Name/Address
• Jurisdictional Public Assistance Card
• Spouse/Parent Affidavit
• Canceled Check or Bank Statement
• Mortgage Documents

 

When supplemental documentation does not support the validation of the original identification documents, IDENTICO may choose any or all of the following methods to validate the authenticity of the documents:

 

Physically examine the applicant’s photograph on the identification form/card. Visually compare the picture with the applicant in person.Compare the physical descriptors of the applicant to the documentation provided by the applicant. (i.e. height, weight, hair and eye color, age, etc.)
Request the applicant to verbally provide date of birth,address, etc. and check this against the identification forms used.
Check the applicant’s signature in person with that on the identification form.
Ensure that the identification form has not been altered in any manner.
Verify that the ID swipe machine readable data matches the data on the card when it is scanned.

 

5. When IDENTICO has a reason to believe an applicant has presented fraudulent information, we do not provide any services and ask applicants to contact local law enforcement agencies for assistance.

 

6. IDENTICO has implemented the form(s), which includes the following data provided by applicant:

 

a. Date of fingerprinting
b. Reason for fingerprinting
c. Printed name and signature of the applicant
d. Applicant’s employment information
e. ORI# and OCA# numbers of agency to receive fingerprints
f. Name of agency and physical address where fingerprinting was performed
g. Type of fingerprint capture (rolled ink, flat ink, live scan, etc.)
h. Applicant’s disclosure information

We will gladly answer to all calls received at (954) 239-8590, and emails sent to info@myidentico.com. Our goal is to be compassionate and to understand each client’s needs, however our ID recognition and authentication policies are intended for public safety and fully compliant with state and federal laws.

Will becoming a drug-free workplace save me money on my workers comp insurance premiums?

If you implement a drug-free workplace program in accordance with the criteria set forth in s.440.102, Florida Statutes, you may be eligible for a 5 percent premium credit from your insurance carrier to your workers’ compensation insurance premium. In addition to the premium credit, having a Workers’ Compensation Drug-Free Workplace Program may make your workplace safer, resulting in fewer accidents, which may reduce your workers’ compensation costs.

 

Am I required to become a carrier certified drug-free workplace?

Becoming a carrier certified drug-free workplace is voluntary. However, without the certification, you would not be eligible for any of the benefits provided under this program.

 

Under the Workers’ Compensation Drug-Free Workplace Program, can I conduct random drug testing of my employees?

In addition to the situations in which testing is mandatory, the law does not prohibit a private employer from conducting random testing or any other lawful testing of employees. A public employer may institute random testing of employees in “safety sensitive” or “special risk” occupations.

 

Can I use a breathalyzer as a valid drug testing method?

Under the Workers’ Compensation Drug-Free Workplace Program, the use of a breathalyzer cannot be used as a testing method for initial or confirmation tests.

 

What if an employee refuses to take a drug test?

If an injured worker refuses to submit to a test for drugs or alcohol, the employee may forfeit eligibility for medical and indemnity benefits. If an employee or job applicant refuses to submit to a drug test, the employer is permitted to discharge or discipline the employee or may refuse to hire the applicant (if specified in the written Drug-Free Workplace Policy), since, by law, refusal to submit to a drug test is presumed to be a positive test result.

 

If a terminated employee files for unemployment compensation benefits, may I inform the adjudicator that the employee was terminated as a result of a positive drug test?

The adjudicator is bound to maintain this information confidential under s.443.1715(3)(b), Florida Statutes, until introduced into the public record pursuant to a hearing conducted under s.443.151(4), Florida Statutes. Under all other instances employers may not release any information concerning drug test results obtained pursuant to section s.440.102(8), Florida Statutes, unless such release is compelled by an administrative law judge, a hearing officer, or a court of competent jurisdiction or is deemed appropriate by a professional or occupational licensing board in a related disciplinary proceeding.

 

Can I post the results of my employees’ drug tests?

All information, interviews, reports, statements, memoranda and drug test results, written or otherwise, received by the employer through a drug testing program is confidential and cannot be posted in any public manner.

Per Florida Statute 493, the Division of Licensing of the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services is responsible for security officers (“D” License) and private investigator licensing (“C” License) in Florida . Background screening is a part of license application, and it is conducted by submitting the set of fingerprints for FBI Level 2 Background Check. Submission can be made by hard copy or via live scan vendors approved by FDLE and DOACS.

 

During D license application processing the Division of Licensing will request an examination of fingerprint records and police records. When a criminal history analysis of any applicant under chapter 439 is performed by means of fingerprint card identification, the time limitations prescribed by s. 120.60(1) shall be tolled during the time the applicant’s fingerprint card is under review by the Department of Law Enforcement or the United States Department of Justice, Federal Bureau of Investigation.

 

If a legible set of fingerprints, as determined by the Department of Law Enforcement or the Federal Bureau of Investigation, cannot be obtained after two attempts, the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services may determine the applicant’s eligibility based upon a criminal history record check under the applicant’s name conducted by the Department of Law Enforcement and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. A set of fingerprints taken by a law enforcement agency and a written statement signed by the fingerprint technician or a licensed physician stating that there is a physical condition that precludes obtaining a legible set of fingerprints or that the fingerprints taken are the best that can be obtained is sufficient to meet this requirement.

Florida House Bill CS/HB 5401 had amended the Florida Statute 39.821 regarding the qualifications of guardians ad litem in Florida.

 

(1) Because of the special trust or responsibility placed in a guardian ad litem, the Guardian Ad Litem Program may use any private funds collected by the program, or any state funds so designated, to conduct a security background investigation before certifying a volunteer to serve. A security background investigation must include, but need not be limited to, employment history checks, checks of references, local criminal history records checks through local law enforcement agencies, and statewide criminal history records checks through the Department of Law Enforcement. Upon request, an employer shall furnish a copy of the personnel record for the employee or former employee who is the subject of a security background investigation conducted under this section. The information contained in the personnel record may include, but need not be limited to, disciplinary matters and the reason why the employee was terminated from employment. An employer who releases a personnel record for purposes of a security background investigation is presumed to have acted in good faith and is not liable for information contained in the record without a showing that the employer maliciously falsified the record. A security background investigation conducted under this section must ensure that a person is not certified as a guardian ad litem if the person has an arrest awaiting final disposition for, been  convicted of, regardless of adjudication, entered a plea of nolo contendere or guilty to, or has been adjudicated delinquent and the record has not been sealed or expunged for, any offense prohibited under the provisions listed in s. 435.04. All applicants certified on or after July 1, 2010, must undergo a level 2 background screening pursuant to chapter 435 before being certified. In analyzing and evaluating the information obtained in the security background investigation, the program must give particular emphasis to past activities involving children, including, but not limited to, child-related criminal offenses or child abuse. The program has the sole discretion in determining whether to certify a person based on his or her security background investigation. The information collected pursuant to the security background investigation is confidential and exempt from s. 119.07(1).

  • What does the 5 year re-screening procedure consist of?

A level 2 background screening that includes the Good Moral Character form ( Download: APD Affidavit of Good Moral Character) , fingerprint submission to FDLE and FBI screening and may include a local criminal record check through the local law enforcement agencies in the county where the employee resides.

 

  • How does the participant/employer get a fingerprint card for their area?

APD Area office staff can assist with obtaining the fingerprint cards, however with IDENTICO LLC you don’t have to be inked, we use electronic fingerprinting solutions and collect your prints on our live scan equipment. We can even help if you don’t know your ORI# or OCA# numbers.

 

  • Where does the prospective employee get their fingerprints completed in their area?

APD Area office staff can assist with locating approved vendors. In a mean time, don’t use unreliable vendors, call IDENTICO today and let us earn your business.
