Custody/Supervision Processing - Custodial Facilities and Parole Supervision - Fingerprinting a Sentenced Individual

1. DCJS Guidelines for Fingerprinting a Sentenced Individual

a. Local correctional facilities should submit a set of Institution Admission Fingerprints for any incarceration offense if it is a fingerprintable offense, regardless of the length of incarceration.

b. If a set of Institution Admission Fingerprints is received at DCJS for an incarceration offense which is not fingerprintable, the incarceration will be updated to the DCJS Criminal History Report (rapsheet) only if the sentence to custody time is for at least 15 days.

2. Standard Practices

a. Local correctional facilities should comply with Correction Law Section 618 by submitting a set of Institution Admission Fingerprints for individuals committed by the court to serve a sentence for a criminal offense as defined in the Penal Law.

b. Electronic means of transmitting the set of Institution Admission Fingerprints should be used whenever possible.
