      Why The FBI Requests Your Fingerprints

      During an FBI fingerprint background check the FBI will need to access certain personal information from you in order to pull up your criminal record. One of those personal items is your unique fingerprint pattern!

      Your fingerprint pattern is used to access national information which includes your "rap sheet" or full criminal record. The agency or department that is requesting you to get an FBI background check most likely needs this information specifically.

      The only successful way to obtain your FBI background check is by submitting your fingerprints to the FBI directly and awaiting their response. Bayou City Fingerprinting offers a full "done for you" solution in order to retrieve your FBI background check.

      FBI Fingerprinting Card

      Applicant Fingerprint Form (FD-258). This FBI fingerprinting card is used for fingerprint submissions to the FBI for the reasons stated above. You can obtain your card through the FBI or when you make an appointment at a Bayou City Fingerprinting location.
