Fingerprinting Instructions

Pursuant to Texas Occupations Code Chapter 1702, DPS must conduct a fingerprint based FBI Criminal History background check for new and renewal Private Security License applications including owners and company representatives.

Private Security applicants are required to submit fingerprints to DPS as part of a substantially complete application per TAC ยง35.21. Fingerprints must be submitted electronically with IdentoGO, unless the applicant qualifies for the Alternative Fingerprint Process.

NOTE* If there are no electronic fingerprinting appointments available within three business days, you may submit a complaint to DPS at Fingerprint Applicant Services of Texas (FAST).
