On Friday May 7, 2010 I spoke with members of the Criminal Justice Information Systems Section about the number and timing of fingerprint based background checks submitted to DPS. From November 2009 to April 2010 between 700 and 1600 fingerprint cards were submitted each month to DPS. At present there is no backlog associated with fingerprint based background checks submitted to DPS. For example, I was told the turnaround time is one to two weeks from the time the fingerprint cards are received. It should be understood that some individual submissions may take significantly longer to process, but this delay is due to information related to the individual submission (e.g. out of state history verification, etc.).
