Program Overview

Applicants will be required to pre-enroll and schedule an appointment to have their fingerprints taken and submitted electronically to CBI for processing utilizing the IdentoGO enrollment site.  To better serve all Colorado citizens, enrollment sites have been strategically placed throughout Colorado. 

In the event an applicant resides outside of Colorado or is physically unable to visit an enrollment location, they will submit their fingerprints to our vendor for cardscan conversion processing.  This process will convert physical fingerprint cards to allow these submissions to be processed electronically utilizing the CABS program.
