I would like to take this opportunity to talk briefly about the Arizona Department of Public Safety (DPS) and expound on some of the programs and initiatives we have implemented to improve our services to the citizens of Arizona.
When Doug Ducey became Arizona’s Governor, he tasked State agencies with significantly improving efficiency, transparency and customer service within their organizations.
In order to meet his request, we began the tough work to meet this goal. One of our greatest successes to date has been the implementation of the Electronic Fingerprint Application System for obtaining Fingerprint Clearance Cards. With this option, applicants with no criminal history are able to obtain a clearance card in as little as four days. This is a significant reduction from fifteen days just a year ago. We are working on rolling out this initiative to other areas of the agency in the coming months.Read More>>
