ACCESSING DHS FINGERPRINTING RESULTS (a/o 31 Oct 2022)

(Applies to Parish Employees and Parish Volunteers; NOT School Employees and School Volunteers)

All registrants will have FBI Reports mailed to them at the address listed during registration (7-10 business days).

However, as of Oct 31 2022, registrants will have the opportunity to have results emailed to them. Please read the following instructions if you wish to receive results via email.

This opportunity only applies to results with no record. During the registration process applicants will be asked for an email address and to create a security question and a security answer.  It is very important that once you create the security question and answer that you retain this information. Three unsuccessful logins will prevent the you from retrieving your results electronically. In order to prevent any unauthorized release of information your security information cannot be reset.  

Shortly after their fingerprinting, you will receive an email (this should happen within a couple days). You will be advised to click on the link within the email and enter the security question and answer (the link does expire so you’ll need to be on the lookout for the email).  If you lock yourself out of the security question and answer your result will be transmitted by US Mail.  Current Mailing timelines take 7-10 business days to reach the intended destination.  

When you do access the results, it is important that you be able to download it, save it and print it for future needs. There will be no second access to this electronic result.

If any result has a record associated with it, those results will not be electronically available and can only be transmitted by US Mail. Current mailing timelines take at least 7-10 business days to reach the intended destination.  

All results will still be transmitted by US Mail to all applicants.
