I have a question for all..

NY State requires a FBI background check. Which i do not have a problem with. My question is this, I am active duty military. To join any part of the US Armed Forces, you need to have a background check conducted by the FBI. With that being said, since i am active duty military and have gone threw all this why do i still have to pay for a background check threw Jefferson county for the live scan process even though i have gone threw. They have my finger prints, and everything already stored in a database some where.

am i missing something here?

It is basically a way for the state to make more money. I got finger printed for military, then for NYS guard license and then again for my pistol permit. Also its just easier to do your prints again for them since the process for everyone will be the same.

My mom worked for the post office on several different occasions (they did some seasonal thing around christmas time) and she had to get printed each time.

Agreed!! I was printed for my pistol permit and in the same week I was printed for a non-leo position within a police department. Had to pay for both sets... Just good ol' NY making their money. I also believe of the fee NY charges, only $18 of it is for the FBI check.

NYS doesn't care if you got fingerprinted 2 hours ago. If you want a permit you need to get printed again. I know, much like the others here I was fingerprinted shortly before me going for my permit and still needed it. It's just a big money thing.

When I went to work for the NYS Mental Health Dept they had me go through a background and fingerprint check, then after being with them for a few years I decide to go with the NYS dept of Corrections and guess what, I had to go through a 2nd fingerprint and background check. Must be my being a state employee already didn't matter. They never gave my military background check any consideration either. Money hungry wh**es that is all NYS is!!
