Should you require to have your fingerprints taken, this card is the official “flashcard” for that use by law enforcement officials. Departments and agencies using the cards may also include state and local officials for purposes of licenses, permits, employment, federal officials and federally chartered or insured banking institutions to promote or maintain security of those institutions may also have use for this product.

It will be helpful for you to review this information to aid in the successful processing of hard copy civil fingerprint submissions in order to prevent delays or rejections. Hard copy fingerprint submissions must meet specific criteria for processing by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Should you process the card prior to presenting it at an official fingerprinting office then ensure all information is typed or legibly printed using blue or black ink. Enter data within the boundaries of the designated field or block. Complete all required fields. (If a required field is left blank, the fingerprint card may be immediately rejected without further processing.)


This card is used by law enforcement agencies in fingerprinting applicants for law enforcement positions, officials of state and local governments for purposes of employment, permits and licensing, as authorized by state statutes and approved by the Attorney General of the United States. Local and county ordinances, unless specifically based on applicable state statutes do not satisfy this requirement. Fingerprint cards are to be used only by U.S. Government agencies and other entities required by federal law, or officials of federally chartered/insured banking institutions to promote or maintain the security of those institutions.
