WebCheck Fingerprinting

COVID-19 Temporary Suspension

WebCheck fingerprinting services have been temporarily suspended due to COVID-19. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

WebCheck Overview

WebCheck utilizes the Internet to electronically transfer fingerprints and other data to the Ohio Bureau of Identification and Investigation (BCI&I) in London, Ohio. The fingerprints and information from the applicant's Driver's License or state ID is encrypted and electronically stored in the computer. The computer then sends the encrypted information over the Internet to BCI&I, which automatically compares the information against fingerprints and criminal histories stored in the Ohio Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS) database. No criminal history is sent over the Internet.

Results are mailed to the address provided by the applicant. If you are an employer or agency and want the results mailed directly to you, instruct your applicants to provide the WebCheck operator with your business address, not the address of the applicants.
