Background Check Fee to Increase in 2019

DPSST was recently notified by the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) that costs associated with criminal history background checks will be increasing. The increase in fees will be effective January 1, 2019. The fee for background checks effective on January 1, 2019 will be $41.25.  

This information is especially important for private security companies that use preprinted checks to pay application and background fees for their applicants. Effective January 1, 2019 applicants will receive a deficiency email for the additional $1.25 if it is not included with their application packet.

Below you will find the new fee structure effective January 1, 2019 for new applicants:

Please note applicants are still responsible for paying any applicable licensing, certification and application-related fees in addition to the background check fee.
