    Fingerprint issue - Utah permit

    Today in the mail I received a letter from the Utah BCI with a blank fingerprint card. The letter said that the quaility of the characteristics were too low to be used and that I had to have them re-done and if I didn't send a new set my permit would be "in danger of being SUSPENDED." I've had my Utah permit for over 2 months. Is this normal? I don't have a probem with having them re-done other then the time and money but my question is why would they issue a permit if prints were bad to begin with?

    Now that's a 'first', and an odd situation. See if you can have them done somewhere on a computer to assure quality and speed. OMO

    Sounds like "stay busy" work to me.

    When the Utah BCI gets aroud to your application, they will process everything and mail you a permit even if the fingerprint results from the FBI are not yet complete.

    When you received your permit there should have been a letter with it stating that the investigative process may not be complete, and the permit may be suspended if anything negative comes up.

    I had them done originally on a computer system.
    SGT Jensen, now that you mention it that letter sounds familiar. I will check my file for a copy of it.

    It sounds as if you may do some type of work or other activity that is wearing down the ridges on your finger pads. I've had this problem, too. Sometimes if they clean your fingers really well it helps, and if you do woodworking or construction or other hands-on work you may want to wear gloves consistently for a week before having your prints taken.

    Also use a good lotion and drink plenty of water to help hydrate from the inside out.

    No, this is not normal at all. In fact, this is the first time I have read about something like this.

    I had the same letter when I received mine last month.

    The computer prints are only as good as the person who rolls them. The FBI kicks back a few print cards a month to Utah BCI.

    I found the letter that came with my Utah permit. In the first paragraph it says
    " This permit is contingent on a satisfactory criminal history report from the FBI. You will be notified if your fingerprints are rejected or of a revocation if the FBI criminal history report contains information of a disqualifying nature."
    So I guess it happens.

    I got my new prints done today and they are in the mail back to Utah's BCI

    Does Utah accept Live Scan fingerprints from out of state applicants? I didn't bother to check. When I applied for my nonresident Nevada CFP, the lady who helped me was nice enough to see my Utah application and asked me if I needed an additional card. It was a live scan fingerprinting for the Nevada CFP and they printed a fingerprint card from that scan for the Utah application.

    I've always been inked in the past, but I applied for my Utah non-resident permit in March, and my prints were scanned at Chesapeake Police Headquarters. It was nice not having to deal with solvents and paper towels to remove ink. Three months have gone by and no permit.
