Electronic and ink card fingerprinting

Security Hut Inc. offers both BCI&I (state of Ohio) and FBI (federal) electronic fingerprinting, through Webcheck®, National Webcheck® and ink card fingerprints.

BCI runs the state’s Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS), which contains the prints of millions along with their criminal histories, and the federal electronic Sex Offender Registration and Notification (eSORN) database, as well as other resources. WebCheck® is a major part of Ohio's AFIS (see above). Webcheck® allows agencies( like Security Hut Inc.) to electronically submit civilian background checks to BCI and receive for our clients the same criminal history results that are collected by law enforcement agencies. WebCheck® uses the Internet to transfer fingerprints and other data from Security Hut Inc. to BCI in order to aid in decision making processes including hiring for potential employees. National Webcheck® is a partnership between BCI and the FBI to conduct FBI background checks through BCI, in the same manner in which Webcheck® is done.


BCI, Webcheck® and BCI's division of National Webcheck® are controlled and regulated through the Ohio Attorney General based upon the requirements set forth in Ohio Revised Code Section (ORC) 109.572.
