Why are fingerprints so vital for screening?

Your fingerprint is unique and that is what makes it so important to the RCMP. People can change their names, addresses or even their date of birth but one thing that a person can never change is their fingerprint. Anyone who has a criminal record will have their fingerprints stored by the Canadian Criminal Real Time Identification Service (CCRTIS). It is this database that is searched when a Certified Criminal Records Check is performed.

Electronic Fingerprinting

Fingerprints Plus promotes the use of Digital Fingerprinting. It is the fastest and most convenient way to perform criminal record checks. Contrary the public perception, Digital Fingerprinting is cheap, reliable and efficient. In most cases, a processing fee of just $25.00 is required for the RCMP. If checks are needed for Immigration, citizenship and requests under the privacy act then the fee is waived by RCMP

When an electronic fingerprint submission is made to RCMP it eliminates the need for a banking service charge and the cost of registered mail or a courier. Fingerprints Plus collects the $25 and sends the fingerprints electronically to the Canadian Criminal Real Time Identification Service (CCRTIS). The cutting edge technology that we use enables to the system to check the quality of the prints as we take them. This means that every fingerprint submitted is perfect and will be accepted. The electronic submission is then processed within 72 hours versus ink roll, which could take up to 9 weeks.

Paper Based Fingerprinting (Ink roll or live scan digital)

Paper based fingerprinting is the manual process of collecting and submitting the prints on paper/card. These fingerprints can be obtained through ink and roll or ink less pad (live scan digital). The impressions are then converted to digital images and compared with the RCMP database. This process takes approximately 3 months.

Although the digital process is clearly quicker and easier, the ink-roll prints are still required for background checks from foreign countries as well as some domestic uses. Fingerprints Plus is fully equipped and RCMP accredited to provide both the digital and the ink-roll service in Canada.

The Advantages of Choosing Digital fingerprinting service:
  • Electronic Fingerprints are processed within 72 hours of submission by RCMP; the Ink roll could take up to 9 weeks
  • The quality of Electronic Fingerprints is verified as we take them. Any fingerprints that can’t be taken, the reason is explained to RCMP and usually accepted. Whereas in ink-roll, there is always a possibility of rejection by RCMP or other police services caused by poor fingerprinting.
  • Electronic Fingerprints are submitted over the secure internet services whereas the ink-roll has to be sent by mail, or courier requiring time and money.
  • RCMP processing fee for the Certified Criminal Record Check is collected by us and submitted to RCMP whereas for ink-roll submission you may have make a draft or money order requiring more time and money.

At Fingerprints Plus we believe that electronic fingerprints are the way forward. We would encourage all customers to make the digital choice. However if the receiving party or the customer insists on an ink roll fingerprint service then we are fully qualified to do so.
