Florida Permit fingerprint cards wrong??

I used Maryland Livescan for my fingerprints. They advertise fingerprints for the Florida permit system, but when I submitted my application, I received a letter from the Florida permitting office saying that my fingerprints must be done by a "law enforcement agency", and as such, my Livescan fingerprints aren't acceptable. Has anyone else had this problem?

All Finger Prints submitted to Florida must be done by a law enforcement agency. Several of our students have encountered this problem. When called, Florida advised that they will only accept live scan from an in state agency. So all non residents must submit ink cards.

Make sure to have the name of the agency and the address of the agency clearly printed on the back right corner of the card. There is only one clear area to put this information. Here's a link and quoted part of the instructions.

FINGERPRINT SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS
You must submit a complete and legible set of fingerprints either on the FINGERPRINT CARD enclosed with this application package or by ELECTRONIC SCAN.
Your fingerprints must be taken at a LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY.** Your local Florida county sheriff will provide fingerprinting service if requested and may
charge a fee not to exceed $5. There may also be a charge associated with the fingerprint service provided by another law enforcement agency. If you have your
fingerprints electronically scanned at a local law enforcement agency, please read the ELECTRONIC FINGERPRINT SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS included in this
application package.
I understand that Florida's instructions are a little vague. But it's their playground and we are forced to play by their rules.

Does Maryland still do fingerprints? Last I heard, they were sending everyone to Livescan.

AACP does Fingerpriting for FL Permits. The MSP can be "difficult".

Check with various LE agencies around you - when you think about it, there are a lot, what with all the police and sheriff's departments. You can use google, or just call their information number. They usually have limited days and hours, and always call to confirm before you show up.

I had mine done by the Carroll County Sheriff's Department, and they were very friendly and professional.

I did a hard card. Florida won't accept it because Livescan isn't "law enforcement". (even though Livescan advertises they do Florida permit fingerprints...I want my $54 back. )

Each Station has different days and hours to do cards. They only accept Checks and Money Orders from my memory, $5.00 per card if I believe.

I use them for my FFL Fingerprinting, and various Carry Permits.


The AACP site used to list times and locations for Fingerprinting as well.
