The Chicago Board of Education (Chicago Public Schools) -
Accurate Biometrics is proud of its ten year relationship with Chicago Public Schools. We were awarded our first contract in late December 2000 and were asked to have our fingerprint operation up and running by January 2, 2001. We succeeded in mobilizing our resources and implementing the project in just two and a half weeks. Accurate Biometrics continues to capture fingerprints for all teachers, support personnel, and CPS contractors.
Illinois Institutions of Higher Education - We provide onsite fingerprint capture for students and employees requiring a criminal history background check to satisfy requirements within the human resource department, education, child care, nursing and/or CNA programs for many of the Illinois Institutions of Higher Education including:
- Illinois Community Colleges
- Illinois Public Universities
- Private Universities
Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS), and Illinois Department of Human Services (DHS) - Accurate Biometrics provides fingerprint services statewide to the Illinois DCFS. To date, Accurate Biometrics has fingerprinted over 230,000 individuals for DCFS licensing and employment. Our services are provided at over 60 sites throughout the state of Illinois. Our fingerprint capture and transmission yields a State and FBI (where applicable) criminal history response sent electronically to DCFS. DCFS is the primary customer within the Illinois Master Fingerprinting contract held by Accurate Biometrics.
Illinois Secretary of State - Since 2002, Accurate Biometrics has captured fingerprints for residents applying for state-required licenses that are issued and monitored by the Illinois Secretary of State. Accurate Biometrics captures fingerprints for Illinois School and Charter Bus licensing.
Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation - Since 2002, Accurate Biometrics has captured fingerprints for residents applying for state-required professional licenses.

Illinois Department of Public Health- Pilot Program & Healthcare Worker Background Check Program - Starting in August 2006, Accurate Biometrics was selected to implement the Federal Health Care Worker Registry pilot program, for long term care employees with direct access to patients.

Illinois Department of Public Health- Identified Offender Program - In July of 2010 Public Act 096-1372 was signed into law. The new law requires all long term care facilities to arrange for a State and Federal Bureau of Investigation live scan Fee Applicant fingerprint check on any new admissions that are determined to be Identified Offenders based upon the Uniform Conviction Information Act (UCIA) name check (or UCIA fingerprint check) within 72 hours of receipt of the name check results. The Nursing Home Care Act establishes a process for facilities to submit criminal background check results to the Illinois Department of Public Health Identified Offenders Program for an investigation and risk assessment. The risk recommendation can then be incorporated into an resident's care plan in order to improve the safety and quality of care for all residents of the facility.
