Fingerprinting Process

What is Live Scan and why do I need it?

Live Scan is an ink less fingerprinting process that electronically transmits
fingerprint records to the California Department of Justice in a matter of seconds.
Live Scan technology replaces the process of recording fingerprints using messy
ink, and shortens the process of background clearances to a matter of days instead
of weeks or months. Live Scan digital fingerprinting is required to process an
individuals criminal background check at the “State Level”. Prints submitted through

is necessary such as forwarding the prints to the FBI.
