CHATTANOOGA , Tenn. — Fingerprinting is no longer just for bad guys and also doesn't mean an inky mess in some Northwest Georgia counties, officials said.

In Walker and Catoosa counties, new fingerprinting equipment has been purchased to expedite background checks.

These days, fingerprint checks are required as a security measure for many people, including teachers, candidates for office, police officers, parents who want to adopt a child or residents who want to purchase a gun, Walker County Sheriff Steve Wilson said.
