Background Fee Increase to $46.25 on September 1, 2021


The Oregon State Police (OSP) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) conduct a one-time fingerprint-based criminal history check for DPSST for individuals applying for a DPSST Private Investigator License. As a part of this criminal history check, OSP/FBI charges DPSST a fee to complete this requirement. That fee is now increasing from $41.25 to $46.25 beginning September 1, 2021 in order for OSP to cover the cost of service and information technology infrastructure required for the program. This fee will support additional OSP staff to address increased demand for the program and will bring the fee in line with other background check fees charged by OSP.

Payment for any fingerprints sent to DPSST or Fieldprints taken that will be processed by OSP/FBI on September 1 or after will need to reflect the fee increase. If DPSST receives payments for $41.25 after this time, our department will send out a deficiency email reflecting the incorrect fee amount.

If you have further questions, you may contact our department at (503) 378-8531 or 

Thank you, 

Private Investigator Staff
