Federal Criminal History Check/FBI Fingerprinting
IDEMIA is Pennsylvania's new vendor for digital fingerprinting. You can register and be fingerprinted at an IdentoGO location. You do not need an appointment to be fingerprinted, but you must pre-register. Once you are registered, you may visit any location during operating hours. Please note, scheduling an appointment may lead to less or no wait times. In order to pre-register for a FBI background check and/or find a fingerprinting location, applicants should visit the IdentoGO website.
