More Access Coming for Texans in Need of Background Checks
The Department of Public Safety’s Fingerprint Applicant Services of Texas (FAST) program will soon expand its current network of 93 enrollment facilities to include 55 new locations — specifically in more rural areas — where secure and convenient fingerprint-based background checks will be provided at IdentoGO Centers by MorphoTrust USA (Safran), Billerica, Mass. Texas awarded the contract to MorphoTrust, making it the first state to implement the company’s new, state-of-the-art commercial enrollment platform.
Civilian applicants seeking licensure, employment and volunteer opportunities in Texas at agencies including the Board of Nursing, the Department of Family and Protective Services and the Texas Education Agency, among others, can now benefit from increased access as well as the improved performance and capabilities offered by MorphoTrust’s commercial enrollment platform. The platform also allows applicants to easily apply for multiple state programs from a single location.
“We are excited to partner with Texas as we expand the enrollment locations required to serve more than 800,000 Texans each year, particularly those in rural areas who will now have greater access,” said Bob Eckel, CEO of MorphoTrust. “Our enrollment services and technology platform offer security, accuracy, reliability and convenience. We look forward to rolling out the new enrollment centers throughout Texas in support of its programs.”
