Background Checks & Fingerprinting

Last item for navigation
Background Checks

Every Lakota employee must be fingerprinted and receive BCI and FBI background checks before working in our district. The cost of this procedure is $55, payable by cash (exact change), money order or personal check at the time of fingerprinting. You will need a driver's license or State ID card and will need to provide your Social Security number when you come in for your background check. Note that Lakota does not provide this service to the general public.

Note: As a subject of a national fingerprint-based criminal history record check for a noncriminal justice purpose, you have certain rights. Click here to read more.
