PURPOSE AND USE

 

The State of New Jersey Manual Fingerprint Card, SBI-19, is used by DCF to request the State Bureau of Identification to do a criminal history check on a person who:

 

·         Is applying to be resource parent or an adult member of a resource parent applicant‘s household and who lives, works, and attends school more than 20 miles outside of New Jersey;

 

·         Is a potential Civil Service employee direct care worker or student intern and who lives, works, and attends school more than 20 miles outside of New Jersey;

 

·         Has a doctor’s note indicating that the applicant or adult household member is physically unable to have his or her fingerprints taken at a MorphoTrak site in New Jersey; or

 

·         Is a child in placement for whom there is a compelling reason to have a set of fingerprints filed in his or her case record. See CP&P-IV-A-6-100.

 

INSTRUCTIONS FOR COMPLETING THE FORM

 

The responsible staff person in the DCF office or police department takes the fingerprints of the resource parent applicant, including any adult who resides in the applicant‘s household, prospective Civil Service employee direct care worker or student intern, or child in placement.

 

The SBI-19 containing a child in placement’s fingerprints is filed in the child‘s case record for as long as he or she is in placement and for at least one year after he or she is no longer in placement.

 

Completed forms for other persons are sent to the DCF LiveScan Liaison, Office of Facilities and Support Services, CC #933. The LiveScan Liaison makes sure that the form is completed correctly. The Liaison forwards the SBI-19 to MorphoTrak to be scanned. If the forms are not completed fully and accurately, in strict accordance with these instructions, they will be rejected and returned to be corrected, completed and resubmitted. This process causes delays in the criminal history background check, and thereby delays the Department’s application approval.

 

All requested information on both the Federal, FD-258, and State, SBI-19, fingerprint cards must be completed. Information must be the same on both cards. It must be typewritten.

If the applicant has a criminal record, the CFU attaches the record to the card and forwards the cards and the criminal history record to the DCF contact person where the records are reviewed for an appropriate decision regarding the applicant. The cards and the criminal record are then filed in the applicant‘s home folder or file.

 

If the applicant does not have a criminal history record, the card is reviewed and filed in the applicant’s home folder or file with the side stamped ”NO CRIMINAL RECORD“ face up.
