FIRM SYSTEMS (Futures In Rehabilitation Management) based out of Springfield, IL - is also an approved vendor and I am a certified fingerprint technician in Central IL. I have been doing fingerprints for 3 years now for a variety of reasons, the most recent is concealed carry instructors. The fingerprints are taken on a livescan machine and is like an email that goes to the ISP then FBI then to the Dept of Financial and Professional Regs. We travel to different sites and make special arrangements for groups or they can make an appointment with our office directly by calling 309-353-5527 KCB Information Services in Pekin, IL. I have fingerprinted some concealed carry instructors already. We accept check, cash, or credit card payment. Karen
I don't want to slander any company. Perhaps this was just a mistake, but a person from FIRM contacted me offering a system lease. This person stated that fingerprints are a requirement of carry concealed. We know that to be false, I corrected this person and they insisted I misunderstood the law, so I sent this person from FIRM a copy of the Public act. On top of that I felt the person I was conversing by email with to be rude. Normally I wouldn't make a post like this but the blatant dis-information about finger prints being a requirement simply has to be brought to attention. I sincerely hope the disinformation was a mistake and not intentional.
