The State of Illinois requires the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) to conduct fingerprint-based background checks on all individuals living or working in a licensed childcare facility who may have unrestricted or unsupervised access to children in care. Individuals age 18 and over are subject to a series of background checks which include the Illinois Child Abuse and Neglect Tracking System (CANTS) as well as the Illinois Sex Offender Registry (SOR). To go along with those two background checks, individuals will also receive a State and FBI fingerprint-based criminal history background check.
Biometric Impressions Corp. is the contracted fingerprint provider for all DCFS fingerprinting in Illinois. A DCFS account is already set up with Biometric Impressions which means the cost of fingerprinting is paid for by DCFS. There is NO cost to you!
