Editor's Note: This local law was originally adopted as Ch. 113 but was renumbered to fit into the organizational structure of the Code.
The City Council finds that the fingerprinting of certain City employees and officers for the purpose of conducting appropriate background checks prior to employment is an appropriate method to further public health, safety and welfare.
