Why do I have to submit a fingerprint card at each renewal cycle if my fingerprint card is already on file with DCJS?

After fingerprint cards are scanned and the results are obtained from the FBI and reviewed, DCJS shreds the fingerprint card in compliance with state and federal guidelines.  Since DCJS does not retain the fingerprint card, a new fingerprint card (dated within 90 days of application) is required for both initial and renewal applicants.
