Applicants who reside out of the District of Columbia, or are physically unable to go to a location to be fingerprinted may use L-1’s Card Scan Processing Program.
This program utilizes advanced scanning technology to convert a traditional fingerprint card (hard card) into an electronic fingerprint record. Converting a “hard card” into an electronic record enables an applicant to have their fingerprint record processed as quickly as if they had traveled to an electronic fingerprint processing location. Applicants must go online to the L-1 Enrollment website or call 1-877-783-4187.
District residents who wish to go to MPD can call 202-442-9004
