L-1 Identity Solutions, Inc. is providing the live scan technology to the Biometric Identification Services for Connecticut’s first full-service fingerprint and background check facility that recently opened in Wethersfield.
The facility, the first-of-its-kind in Connecticut to operate outside of a police station, will provide citizens with a more convenient, secure and rapid process for completing fingerprint based background checks required for state-licensed and other jobs such as school employees, bus drivers and day care workers as well as for applicants for pistol permits, prospective foster parents and public service licenses.
In addition to the live scan devices, L-1 is providing printer hardware and software to facilitate the collection and vetting of applicant information.
Now, background checks required for state-licensed jobs and other permits are administered at local police departments. However the added volume of fingerprinting and performing background checks for civilian employment license requirements is substantial, necessitating the service to be offered only as time permits. Often this means infrequent availability or services offered at times that may not be convenient for applicants.
