If the agency that printed you, submits the prints to the State Police, the SP in that state will submit them to the FBI. I heard of this kid a few years ago, got on and got fired 18 months later when they got a hit on his prints from Nevada that he was arrested. It was a minor BS offense, but they got him for lying.POPO - If you were printed in the process; doesnt that also leave a permanent record?
popo said:Don't lie, they can pull your credit report and show another PD out of state that ran you. Be careful, as a background investigator I learned alot and we find everything out eventually. You can get fired five years from now for lying on something when you were hired.
I was under the impression that the civil ten-print cards are stored for a period of 75 years, and as such, would be accessible during a BI. While this would not be "negative" it could trip you up if you "forgot" to mention it. I've completed applications where the question, "Have you ever been fingerprinted?" is asked.K9Vinny said:If fingerprints are submitted to the FBI by a PD for a background investigation, they are run as a civil submission, as opposed to a criminal submission on the red fingerprint cards. The red cards. (FD-249) are the ones kept as a record of criminal arrest by the FBI. The civil cards, or blue ones, only show up with the FBI in their billing records for a civil submission. There is no "permanent record" or anything negative for being fingerprinted and processed for a background investigation. The submitting agency pays a fee to the feebes. FYI.
