Background Check

Washington Township offers three types of background check services: FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation), BCI (Bureau of Criminal Investigation), and FBI and BCI.

To be eligible for either of these checks, you must present a valid drivers’ license, state issued identification, or passport at the time of appointment. Minors must have a parent or guardian present who is willing to sign the application on their behalf.

Applicants also must bring an authorization code from their employer, prospective employer or agency for which the test is being conducted, and the mailing address that is to receive their test results.

All fingerprints are obtained electronically. Within 30 days, the agency that processes your prints (BCI and or FBI) will mail your results to the business or entity you identify at the time of your test.

In the unlikely event that we are not able to obtain electronic prints that are clear enough to be accepted by the BCI, you will be referred to an agency that can collect ink prints.

The cost for each BCI check is $25. The cost for each FBI check is $30 (payable in cash, check or credit card (Visa or Mastercard). The cost for both BCI and FBI is $55. To make an appointment, call (614) 652-3920 Monday – Friday. Appointments are located at the Township Administration Building, 6200 Eiterman Rd. in Dublin.
