Civilian Fingerprinting/Employment Background

WebCheck - Civilian Fingerprinting/Employment Background

What is WebCheck and how does it work?

WebCheck electronically transfers fingerprints and other data from the inquiring agency to the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation (BCI&I). This technology speeds up background checks by the use of a Fingerprint Scanner and an Ohio Driver's License or Ohio identification card with the magnetic strip, connected to the WebCheck System.  The computer then sends all information over the Internet to BCI&I's computer center, which automatically compares the information against the fingerprints and criminal histories stored in the Ohio Automated Fingerprint Identification System database.

Service Hours

Services are available Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm (excluding holidays/observed holidays) at 1250 W. Fifth Street, Marysville. Services are available to all people who live or work within the City of Marysville. There is no appointment necessary, but wait times may vary based on the availability of officers. Individuals are encouraged to complete a Fingerprint Service Request Form prior to arriving at the Division of Police. This form MUST be completed by the requester prior to the fingerprint/background being performed. All appropriate 'Reason Fingerprinted' fields must be completed by the requester. Officers are not able to provide that information.

When will the results be available?

It can vary, but requesting agencies usually receive the information within 30 days of the prints being taken.

Who will get the results?

The results will be mailed to the employing agency. This is why it is important to complete the request accurately and completely.

Is there a charge for the service?

The Marysville Division of Police incurs a fee from the Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation for each WebCheck background check.  We also incur an annual maintenance fee.  The total fees incurred are passed on to anyone wishing to participate. The cost for a WebCheck is $56 for both FBI and BCI. BCI only is $32 and FBI only is $34. We currently accept cash in the exact amount (we cannot make change), check/money order or credit card. 

Required criteria:

The person being fingerprinted must have a valid Driver's License or current Identification card with photo. The person must be at least eighteen years of age. If under eighteen, the person must be accompanied by a parent/guardian who is required to sign a waiver. No WebCheck will be conducted without the proper identification.
