Background Check/ Fingerprinting

NO BACKGROUND CHECKS:  Background checks will not be available at the ESC on May 3, 2023.

NOTE:  There are occasions when we are unable to run background checks.  While rare, it does happen from time-to-time.  We recommend calling ahead to be sure background checks can be conducted on the day you plan to have it done.
