1. Fingerprints must be taken by a qualified law enforcement
agency (police or sheriff’s office) or other entity that
provides fingerprinting services. These fingerprint cards
may be either the traditional ink rolled fingerprints or
electronically captured and printed fingerprint cards. You
may want to call ahead to determine the hours of
operation as well as if there are any fees associated with
this service.
2. Fingerprints MUST be submitted on FBI applicant cards (FD-
258). Most law enforcement agencies will provide this card
as a part of the service. If the law enforcement agency is
unable to provide the FBI applicant card, you may obtain
one by contacting the Idaho Department of Insurance at

[email protected].
3. Once the fingerprint card has been completed in its
entirety, please remit with a $70.00 processing fee
(personal checks are not accepted, must be in the form of
a money order or cashier’s check payable to PSI Services,
LLC). Be sure to include the fingerprint receipt as well as
the Request and Release and ISP CHRI documents (found
