Frequently Ask Questions(FAQs)

  • What is LiveScan fingerprinting
    Livescan fingerprinting is the use of our advanced livescan devices to capture fingerprints electronically. We then transmit these images directly to state and federal agencies through a secured channel. This technology allows for a much quicker and more secure method than traditional ink fingerprinting. Livescan fingerprinting uses a digital scanner. It’s as simple as placing your fingers on a glass plate while our technician assists in rolling them back and forth to get the best possible image.

    Even though the fingerprint records are still in the computer for approximately 90 days, we are prohibited from re-using/submitting old fingerprints and information for new background checks. We will not print out fingerprint cards from previous transactions. The applicant is required to have the fingerprints taken again at the time of transaction.
