They take new fingerprints each time. What is most concerning is that some sheriffs seem to think that you must list all residences back to 18 and provide your original training certificate for a renewal (a license renewal application in a different county is still a renewal). I'm curious, did they charge the full fee or did they only charge the renewal fee? If they charged the renewal fee, that pretty well confirms that it is a renewal.
