Fingerprinting services are now provided by the Texas Dept. of Public Safety via a contractual provider- L-1 Identity Solutions FAST service. This service overcomes problems associated with rejections due to print quality, time delays in response (fingerprints are now electronically submitted), and scheduling of appointments for fingerprinting services.
Texas law authorizes fingerprint-based criminal history checks for designated volunteers and employment or licensing applicants in a wide variety of areas such as child care providers, teachers, security and armed guards, security system contractors, and a host of others.
