1st Choice Fingerprinting is registered with the State of Ohio as a WebCheck® Community provider. We offer the most accurate and expedited National WebCheck®/fingerprinting (background checks). Today, many Ohio landlords and employers in both the private and public sectors are required by law to perform background checks on new tenants, hires and persons obtaining professional licenses.
What is WebCheck?
WebCheck® is a system that uses the internet to transmit scanned fingerprints and other information to the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation (BCI&I) in Ohio. The data is encrypted before being transferred via a secure internet connection to a server at the BCI computer center. An employer, board or organization should receive results within 2-30 business days after making an application.
National WebCheck® utilizes the same process. The collected data is sent directly to the State of Ohio fingerprint repository AFIS for background searches and is afterwards passed through to the FBI’s IAFIS. The National WebCheck® was created as a collaborative effort between the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation (BCI&I) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). WebCheck® and National WebCheck® are registered trademarks of the Ohio Attorney General’s Office.
