NJ SORA License: Complete Information



After you have completed and submitted your application, you have 30 days to submit your fingerprints.

Here is the language, taken straight from the NJ State Police website:

You must have a fingerprint using the MorphoTrust form provided at the end of the security officer’s application.

This form is already filled in with the required information for fingerprinting. I

If you do not use the correct form, we will not receive your fingerprint information and it will have to be reprinted.

Outside of the state or applicants who work or live outside of a 20 mile radius of the New Jersey border are allowed to submit ink and roller fingerprint cards.

These applicants can submit cards directly to the Private Detective Unit.

These cards must be attached to the completed universal form and a check payable to MorphoTrust.

DO NOT send fingerprint cards directly to MorphoTrust.

Please forward the two (2) “Ink and Roll” fingerprint cards per application, the duly completed universal form and the check or money order to be paid to MorphoTrust in the correct amount to the following address:
