The amount of the fee shall be forwarded to the Department of Justice, with two copies of applicant’s or employee’s fingerprint cards. The governing board may collect an additional fee not to exceed two dollars ($2) payable to the local public law enforcement agency taking the fingerprints and completing the data on the fingerprint cards.

Any provision of law to the contrary notwithstanding, the Department of Justice, shall, as provided in this section, furnish, upon application of a local public law enforcement agency all information pertaining to any person required to submit personal identification cards pursuant to this section if there is a record of the person in its office.
