Effective Oct. 1, 2018, we staff will no longer be able to accommodate public fingerprinting.An image of a fingerprint

The Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is in the process of implementing a new, statewide digital fingerprinting process known as CABS (Colorado Applicant Background Services) in response to Senate Bill 17-189. The CBI recently awarded contracts to Colorado Fingerprinting and IDEMIA. This allows third party vendors to print and submit non-criminal applicant fingerprints for the State of Colorado. These vendor services will be located throughout the state, increasing applicants’ ability to obtain fingerprints in a timely manner. The vendors will electronically transmit the civil fingerprints to the CBI. With the new process, CBI will not accept fingerprints done the way we are able to do them.
