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

What does that mean?

The Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has implemented a 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 IdentoGO.

This allows these vendors to print and submit non-criminal applicant fingerprints for the State of Colorado. The vendor services are located throughout the state, increasing applicants’ ability to obtain fingerprints in a timely manner. These vendors electronically transmit the civil fingerprints to the CBI for processing. CBI will no longer accept fingerprints from CUPD.

This includes any type of civil fingerprints for background checks for Colorado’s 64 professions requiring licensing. Examples are: teachers, child care, Colorado bar, real estate, massage therapy, and EMS to name a few.

What if my fingerprints are not for Colorado or I need fingerprints for the FBI?

If you are a CU affiliate you are in luck! For members of the CU community who need to submit a physical fingerprint card to an out-of-state agency or to the FBI, CUPD will continue to fingerprint you.

Fingerprinting is conducted in our Records department, on the second floor of our building at 1050 Regent Drive. We provide fingerprinting services Tuesday – Friday from 3 - 4  pm. The cost is $8.00 for the first card and $2.00 for any additional cards. We only accept cash or check at this time, so please plan accordingly. There is an ATM in the first floor lobby of our building. Your BuffOne card will be required as proof of current affiliation.
