Live Scan Services

Fingerprinting is done in one of two ways – digitally by scanning your fingerprints on to a Live Scan computer and/or by ink (wet prints) manually on an ink card.  Typically, your employer or the agency that requires you to have your background screened will inform you on the type of fingerprinting needed.

When your fingerprints are scanned digitally, it is referred to as a Live Scan.  Upon completion of your live scan, your digital prints are electronically submitted immediately to the CA Department of Justice (CA DOJ) and/or the FBI.  These government agencies will then match your fingerprints against their criminal data base and directly notify the requesting agency of the results.  If you have no record, you have successfully passed your background screening and the requesting agency may then issue your license or credential and authorize you to commence employment as the case may be.
