Anyone have any problem having fingerprints done?
We had to have our fingerprint clearance cards done last week. I work at Head Start and these cards are a requirement for our child care licensing.
Well, the HR person came in yesterday and told me I needed to re-do mine because my prints couldn't be read by the police department scanner--my hands were too dry.
So yesterday afternoon, I doused my hands in lotion, put on some gloves, and went back to the PD. I took my gloves off, re-filled the paperwork, and the lady came out to do my prints. She commented "Wow, your hands ARE dry, can you put some lotion on to get rid of those cracks?" I told her I already had some on, along with my gloves, so my hands aren't as dry as they usually are, and they can't get any more "moist". The cracks are actually very deep lines and they won't go away.
So the lady at the PD seemed doubtful that they'd be able to read these prints, too. But we'll find out in about a week.
Anybody else have any problems with fingerprinting?
