Live Scan Fingerprinting

Here are some reasons why you may need to check your criminal history.

Live Scan is an inkless, electronic means of capturing fingerprints in a digitized format and then transmitting them to a referred agency, without the need for the more traditional method of ink and paper. Electronic Fingerprint Submissions are required by the Federal Bureau of Investigation for conducting criminal history record checks on a variety of professions, occupations positions and licenses. It must precede the release of national criminal history record information to the non-criminal justice licensing, employing or regulatory agency authorized to receive such information.

Live Scan digital submissions provide the quickest and most efficient way to submit and process a background check to determine if an applicant has engaged in any criminal activity, or has prior felony convictions, that would make them unsuitable for a position that are applying for.
