A Brief History

Following Senate Bill 17-189, the Colorado Bureau of Investigation is implementing a new, Statewide digital fingerprinting process known as CABS (Colorado Applicant Background Services). As one of the vendors selected by CBI to implement the CABS program, our company has been approved to replace the current paper-and-ink fingerprinting process (performed by local law enforcement) with a state-of-the-art digital fingerprinting program that transmits fingerprints directly to CBI through a secure, online connection.

                                      Who We Are:

CBI has chosen American BioIdentity, Inc., dba Colorado Fingerprinting, as one of two vendors to deliver the new CABS Digital Fingerprinting Process. American BioIdentity Inc. is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the American DataBank Group located in Downtown Denver since 1999. In choosing Colorado Fingerprinting for digital fingerprinting as part of the CABS program, the background check processing will be faster, fingerprint rejections will occur significantly less, and the process will be of great convenience to the people of Colorado.

The Colorado Fingerprinting Advantage:

Colorado Fingerprinting gives you the home field advantage. Our main office is based in Denver, so we can quickly mobilize a team to serve your on-site fingerprinting needs or troubleshoot any issues that arise. We will go the extra mile to make sure you have a successful experience with the CABS program. At Colorado Fingerprinting, customer service is our passion. A simple Google search of “Colorado Fingerprinting” will show you our five-star customer service rating. We look forward to serving your fingerprinting needs. Contact us any time for assistance.

CABS for Employers

 

How the CABS Program will Work:

Your applicants can choose to be fingerprinted at any of our convenient locations. We are opening over 30 locations throughout the State of Colorado and will continue to grow to accommodate your needs. Alternatively, a mobile on-site service can be set up at your location to address peak volume needs (on-site fee may apply).

 

 

Features of the CABS program include:

Step 1 : Online Registration

Your applicants will get started through our Online Enrollment Center. As part of the enrollment process, each of your applicants will provide your unique CBI ID along with other identifying information.

Step 2 : Location

Each applicant chooses a location, date, and time that is convenient for their appointment.

Step 3 : Payment or Billing Account

Your applicant pays the fee (CBI and FBI fee, if applicable, + $10 vendor service fee) with a credit/debit card or by using your billing account code and invoicing you later (see the billing account section below for more details). Following payment, the applicant receives an Order ID via text message or email that will be used to identify the applicant upon arrival at the fingerprinting site.

Step 5 : Results

The results are returned by CBI in the same manner as they are today.

Step 4 : Fingerprinting

The applicant arrives at the chosen fingerprint location on the scheduled day and time and identifies himself/herself to the enrollment agent with a photo ID and the Order ID (email or text version).  Livescan fingerprints, digital photo, and digital signature are then captured and submitted to CBI. Please note that before a fingerprint is taken, all CABS applicants must register through the online Enrollment Center with assistance, if needed, from our Call Center.

Status Portal for HR Updates:

 

A significant advantage of the CABS program will be new online tools that your HR Administrators can use to enhance management of the employee fingerprinting process.  Colorado Fingerprinting will provide all CBI clients with an online Status Portal that allows you to see at any time the status of:

  • Registered Applicants – Applicants that have registered for fingerprinting.
  • Appointment Details – Selected fingerprinting location and appointment day and time.
  • Date Fingerprinted – Date the applicant was fingerprinted.
  • Payment Method – View the payment status (i.e. applicant paid by credit card or used your billing account)
  • Completion/Rejection Status – The status of the fingerprint within CBI (was the submission to CBI successful or rejected?)
