What you Get From Our Fingerprinting Service

NATIONAL WEBCHECK FINGERPRINTING

1st Choice Fingerprinting is a provider of National WebCheck. National WebCheck is an electronic fingerprint collection and transmitting system designed by the Ohio Attorney General’s Office. This system allows background checks to be done via the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation (Ohio BCI) with results being available in less than a day.

Our mobile fingerprinting service captures and submits electronic fingerprint scans, demographic information and verifies the data with the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation’s WebCheck System.

The process for electronic fingerprinting uses state-of-the-art equipment. The process is virtually error-free, therefore avoiding smudged readings and/or delivery errors often associated with the ink processing method.

An Increased Need for Security

The past decade has seen the rise of privacy laws and increase in security measures across all states. As a result, employee background checks are becoming more commonplace in many businesses and organizations.

It has always been a requirement for employees to pass some kind of background check in many industries, including fingerprinting and drug screening tests. But due to the changes in Ohio law, now many more industries and professions must adopt the new security measures.

OUR services

Many organizations in Ohio require identity management services such as BCI background checks for a variety of reasons. From the FBI, landlords, employers to volunteer groups, fingerprinting services provide a comprehensive means to confirm identity of individuals.

The fingerprints are submitted to the state of Ohio and / or the FBI for a criminal background check.

FBI/BCI Reason Code Requirement
