What is Live Scan?
A Live Scan is inkless electronic fingerprinting. The prints are digitized and transmitted directly to the Department of Justice (DOJ). The DOJ will check the fingerprints against known criminal history records. The DOJ will then send a response directly to the agency requesting the Live Scan, regardless of whether or not the applicant has a criminal history.
How long does it take to get the results?
In most cases, DOJ will send the results to the requesting agency listed on the Request for Live Scan Service form within 72 hours. Results can be delayed for various reasons. DOJ will contact the requesting agency for any significant delays. Once your Live Scan is completed at our facility, please direct all inquiries to the agency handling your employment or licensing.
What is Hard Card/Ink Card?
Some businesses request ink fingerprints on cards. These are not the same as a Live Scan, but we provide this service as well. If you were asked to get fingerprinted on a card, bring along the fingerprint card(s) and a valid form of identification. The fee for this service is $25 per card.
