Utah Fingerprinting Solutions

Utah Bureau of Criminal Identification (UT BCI) is the main submitting entity where all electronic fingerprint records are submitted in the state of Utah. UT BCI allows non-Law Enforcement entities to transmit fingerprint records electronically to UT BCI for civilian applicant purposes. Additionally, the livescan vendor can print the fingerprint records to a hard card if they opt to purchase the printer and print-to-card software engine. The print-to-card functionality is not a requirement to submit to UT BCI.

UT BCI supports background checks for a limited scope of individuals. These individuals include people working with children and vulnerable adults; private entities and private adoption and public law. If an entity doesn't fall under any of the prior categories, you can add an FBI Channeling feature to support submitting electronic records to the FBI through an FBI Channeler. See the links below for more information.
