Florida Division of Securities: 

Securing your valuables is important. Even more critical is verifying that those who are securing your goods are well-equipped to do so. In Florida, this responsibility falls on the Division of Securities. Following the creation of the Florida Securities and Investor Protection Act in 1990 (FL Statutes 517.011-517.32), the Division of Securities oversees all security sales in Florida. Their goals are countering fraudulent activity by unlicensed security firms and promoting economic growth through protected trade. The Florida Division of Securities is further divided into two bureaus, both of which are required to fingerprint all of their employees. Whether you join the Bureau of Registration or Bureau of Enforcement, you will first need to register on their website, before getting your fingerprint-based background check.  

This is where BioMetric Impressions Corp. can help you! We are the industry leader for livescan fingerprint services in Illinois and Iowa. Now, bring the same high service standard to our clients in Florida. Our fingerprint technicians and customer service team are happy to help you begin, continue, or complete your admission to the Florida Division of Securities!
