Civil identification determines if the person has any prior criminal arrest record.

Criminal is for determining the individual's prior record and/or recordings.

Answer from the Fingerprinting Merit Badge page:

Fingerprint records are maintained in civil and criminal repositories in America. Civil fingerprint identification, such as occurs with police or soldiers entering into public service, is the recording of a person's fingerprints primarily for the purposes of:
  • Determining the person has no prior criminal arrest record.
  • Verifying the person's identity at a later date.

Criminal fingerprint identification is the recording of an arrested person's fingerprints primarily for the purposes of:
  • Recording the arrest and/or conviction information in a permanent file associated with that person.
  • Determining the person's true identity if they have used other names for previous arrests.
  • Determining the person's prior arrest/conviction record.
