DPS Computerized Criminal History (CCH) Verification

I have been notified that a Computerized Criminal History (CCH) verification check will be performed by accessing the Texas Department of Public Safety Secure Website and will be based on the name and date of birth identifiers I supply.

Because the name-based information is not an exact search and only fingerprint record searches represent true identification to criminal history, the organization conducting the criminal history check for background screening cannot discuss any criminal history record information obtained using the name and date of the birth method.  Therefore, the agency may request that I have a fingerprint search performed to clear any misidentification based on the result of the name and date of birth search.

For the fingerprinting process, I will be required to submit a full and complete set of my fingerprints for analysis through the Texas Department of Public Safety AFIS (Automated Fingerprint Identification System).  I have been made aware that to complete this process, I must make an appointment with L1 Enrollment Services, submit a full and complete set of my fingerprints, request a copy be sent to the agency listed below, and pay a fee of $24.95 to the fingerprinting services company, L1 Enrollment Services.

Once this process is completed and the agency receives the data from DPS, the information on my fingerprint criminal history record may be discussed with me.

(This copy must remain on file by your agency. Required of future DPS Audits)

By submitting this volunteer application, I agree to all the terms and conditions above for volunteering at FWISD.

 


By signing your name you agree to all the above statements. Use the mouse or touch screen to sign.
