IMPORTANT: Critical Changes to Background Screening December 14, 2016

We are announcing today that due to changes at the Utah Bureau of Criminal Identification and the FBI that there is only one background screening and fingerprint fee. The new fee will be $37.00, effective immediately. This fee applies regardless of what state a person has lived in and includes the full FBI ongoing nationwide Rap Back lifetime subscription. This means that all individuals are processed at the highest level of nationwide ongoing monitoring for an even lower cost, and that it doesn’t matter what state their identification is from or if they use a passport. The background screening forms have been updated to reflect this. Any fees related to LiveScan or otherwise creating fingerprints remain unchanged.

We will continue to accept the old form and fee for the next few months. If you submit the former higher fee, however, you will not be refunded. Beginning March 1, 2017, all old applications and fees will be no longer be accepted and will be returned to you for re-submission.
