TXDPS has been notified by the FBI that all
Fingerprint based background checks will be temporarily suspended
beginning April 28, 2010 - May 3, 2010. The FBI Criminal Justice
Information Services (CJIS) will be working with the U.S. Census Bureau
to process more than 484,000 Fingerprints for Census Bureau workers.
Beginning May 4, 2010, TXDPS and the FBI will resume
processing applicant fingerprints. It is important to note that the
backlog of processing the fingerprint based background checks could take
an additional two weeks. All applications will processed as quickly as
possible once the FBI service returns to normal.
We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate
