GAPS - Georgia Applicant Processing Service


Effective May 1st Fieldprint is the new GAPS vendor!

Please direct applicants to to register for fingerprinting and background check services. Gemalto/Thales should no longer be contacted. This site is also for new GAP agency enrollment.


  • Do you want to receive your state and authorized federal criminal history record checks for employment or licensing within 2 BUSINESS DAYS? 

  • Is your current practice of printing applicants, mailing fingerprint cards and waiting days for results to be mailed too CUMBERSOME?

  • If so, register with the Georgia Applicant Processing Service (GAPS) and have results returned to a secure web server the same day or next day!

  • GAPS provides agencies submitting fingerprint cards   the option to have applicant background checks processed electronically in a non-criminal justice environment.   This process provides timely search results and decreases rejections due to poor fingerprint quality of inked fingerprint cards. 

  • Fixed GAPS offices will be located throughout the state so that Georgia residents will not travel more than 25 – 30 miles to be fingerprinted.

  • Search results and criminal history records or “rapsheets” will be available for the agency to retrieve directly from the GAPS website within 24-48 hours after the applicant is fingerprinted and the transaction submitted to GCIC.

Visit the GAPS website for complete details on the background check process, print site locations, and to register your agency.   You may also contact GCIC at (404) 244-2639, option 2 or via email at [email protected] for additional information or assistance.
