Florida Fingerprinting Solutions

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) is the main submitting entity where all electronic fingerprint records are submitted. There is another channel referred to as the Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) that accepts electronic fingerprint records and photos for all healthcare workers. So if you plan to offer a fingerprinting service to anyone in your community, you will want a system that can submit fingerprint records electronically to both FDLE and AHCA. Also, in most states, Firearms dealers and trainers can use a livescan system to create electronic fingerprint records which are then printed to cards. Not so in Florida. FDLE requires gun owner to be fingerprinted by a law enforcement agency, which will print to a special card that has a watermark.
