    Fingerprinting for CCW

    When you submit your prints to obtain your CCW (if printing is required) are the prints entered into the FBI database or just compared to make sure you have no criminal record?

    Thanks,

    I would believe its a complete check, someone with more info will chime in here .alot of info here.I'm new here too

    But your question does raise OTHER questions lol

  4. From my knowledge of the process for California the finger prints are to confirm ID. If you have a California permit there is a CII number on your permit. This CII number is your "RAP sheet" number for CALIFORNIA. Once you have a Cali permit you have a RAP sheet! You criminal. In Cali the fingerprints are captured by LiveScan. These are always accessible by any agency.

    For Utah my understanding is that the paper copy of the records are for ID and for the state's records.

    If I were a betting man, and I'm not, I would bet on the prints being sent to the FBI - "for background check".
    Logically, they - the FBI - has to have a copy for tracking/comparison purposes. JMHO

    From what I understand, most agencies don't keep records of your prints for identification purposes (as in pre-employment checks and CC permit applications). The fingerprints are sent to the FBI for comparison to their database of prints that they do have on file (mostly folks with a criminal record, and in rare cases persons with certain job vocations). If the prints don't match any in the criminal database (booking fingerprints as well as unknown prints found at crime scenes), then the FBI informs the requesting agency that there is no criminal record.

    Hope this helps.

    In Arizona they are kept in the data base to be used later. One crime was solved in AZ using the prints from the cc application. I don't think its right that an honest person must submit his fingerprints.

    If you were in the military your fingerprints are on file with the FBI. Again, I would bet everytime the FBI gets a print without a match it is kept on file for future reference. That is just logical.
    Don't you watch CSI(s)?? How could they possibly solve those crimes week after week if there wasn't such a database.

    I went and read the FBI web site. They compare the card to the criminal database. You are not entered into it. They tell the requestor that there is either a record or no record. The FBI then files the card at their fingerprint center in WV.


    If I had Googled before I posted I would have known this. sorry

    I don't think that one should have to provide their Social Security Number either.
