OUR SERVICES

Ink & Roll Fingerprinting

Edmonton Fingerprinting Services offices are equipped to process high quality ink and roll fingerprints on standardized fingerprint cards.

While most applicants will be able to take advantage of digital fingerprinting sessions, traditional ink and roll fingerprints are required for foreign police checks (including an FBI check), some high level Canadian security screening purposes and for those individuals whose fingerprints are of too poor quality for electronic submission.
