SAFIS – Fingerprinting Program

In September 2013, Governor Patrick signed into law Chapter 77 of the Acts of 2013, “An Act Relative to Background Checks.” This new law expands the Criminal Offender Record Information (CORI) checks currently used in our schools. Specifically, it requires a fingerprint-based state and national criminal record check for all school employees. The State Applicant Fingerprint Identification System (SAFIS) MorphoTrust USA IndentoGo TM has been created for this purpose.
