Colorado Fingerprinting for Employers and Licensing Agencies

Colorado Fingerprinting works with employers and licensing agencies for fingerprint processing with the Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI), fingerprint cards for non-CBI purposes (employment or licensure in other states, ATF, federal purposes, etc.), FBI background checks for security guards, adoption, legal name changes, living or working in other countries, Florida livescan processing and more. 

How the CABS Program will Work:

Your applicants can choose to be fingerprinted at any of our convenient locations. We have over 50 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).

Status Portal for HR Updates Available Now:

A significant advantage of the CABS program is the new online tools that your HR Administrators can use to enhance management of the employee fingerprinting process.  Colorado Fingerprinting can 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?) 

Billing Account:

If you would like to be billed for the fees, please complete this billing form to establish a commercial billing account. Please complete the form and either scan and email it, take a picture and email it, or fax it to 303-573-1298 attention fingerprinting. Once your billing account has been established, please instruct your applicants to provide your CBI Unique ID/Service Code as your billing code to be used as payment.

Fingerprint Cards:

We provide fingerprint cards for non-Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) purposes such as licensure or employment in other states, Federal purposes, ATF, other countries, and for other non-CBI purposes.  This is a simple three step process:

  2. Fingerprinting – Arrive to your selected location on your appointment day and time to have your fingerprints taken.
  3. Fingerprint Cards – The fingerprint cards are shipped to the address you provided using the shipping method selected during the registration process.

We can provide applicant instructions to provide to your applicants to minimize confusion and streamline the process.

Florida LiveScan Fingerprinting:

​If you have an applicant that needs to get fingerprinted for licensure and employment in Florida we can electronic submit fingerprints to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) with results returned within 24-72 hours.  This is a simple three step process.

Colorado Name Change Fingerprinting:

A legal name change in the State of Colorado requires both a Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) (state only) background check and a FBI background check.  Colorado Fingerprinting can help with both required checks at any of our locations throughout the State of Colorado.  This is a simple process.

Results – Both the CBI and FBI results are typically received within 2-3 weeks.  Once both results are received the applicant can file their submission to the court to have their name changed.  Please note, the court will only accept FBI and CBI background check results that are dated within 90 days of filing your petition so file your petition immediately after receiving the results.

Kinship Adoption:

Kinship adoption is the adoption of a child by a grandparent, aunt, uncle, relative (either biological or a relative by marriage) or other member of the extended family. Kinship adoptions in Colorado typically require both a Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) (state only) and FBI fingerprint based background check.  Colorado Fingerprinting can help with both required checks at any of our locations throughout the State of Colorado.  This is a simple process.
