What is FDLE?

Florida Department of Law Enforcement

Florida Department of Law EnforcementNeed a license in Florida? Did you know the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) stopped accepting ink fingerprint card submissions for Florida licensing as of 2013?

This change has made it more difficult for out-of-state applicants to get accurate information and assistance with processing their Florida license requests.

But we can help! In partnership with PrintScan, Safe Scan Fingerprinting is an FDLE Approved Live Scan provider. We can assist with all of your Florida licensing needs!

While you could opt to deal with multiple Florida agencies yourself, our all-inclusive FDLE Fingerprinting Service will save you time and frustration.

Our trained Fingerprint Technicians will capture your fingerprints electronically and the submission will be uploaded to the FDLE. All you need is the ORI (Originating Agency Identifier) number issued by the requesting agency to ensure your prints are correctly forwarded.

ORI Number

The applicant will be given instructions (from the agency) that includes a specific ORI Number (Originating Agency Identifier). Florida Live Scan background checks are completed within three business days of receiving the electronic submission.

Requesting Agency

A requesting agency is the organization that asks a Live Scan applicant to get Live Scan. This can be an employer, law enforcement agency, school, non-profit organization, home-care agency, etc. Requesting agencies are also sometimes referred to as applicant agencies.
