As of April 1, 2012, FDLE and the FBI will no longer accept hard copy fingerprint cards for background checks. All fingerprinting will be submitted electronically via a Live Scan device. Once the Police Department submits your fingerprints you will be responsible to cover the processing fees set forth by FDLE and the FBI. Payment via a credit card will only be accepted at the website = https://caps.fdle.state.fl.us

  • Your fingerprint technician will provide you with the documents that you need to complete this process. 

  • Your fingerprints will be submitted to FDLE for a state and national criminal records check and will be processed within 24 to 72 hours from time of receipt.

    • If your fingerprints are rejected for fingerprint quality, you will be required to resubmit a second set at no additional cost. However, you will be required to bring in rejection letter for re-submission.
