Live Scan Fingerprinting

Live Scan is an inkless, electronic means of capturing fingerprints in a digitized format and then transmitting them to a state repository such as CJIS (Criminal Information Justice Services) and /or the FBI. Previously, fingerprints were taken by applying ink to each finger, then rolling each finger on a fingerprint card. This method was inherently messy and prone to capturing poor image quality. By processing fingerprints electronically, criminal history responses can be provided within a matter of hours if received electronically or 3-5 days if received by mail.

Fingerprints are then searched against a state criminal database and/or FBI criminal database (where applicable).

Live Scan provides fingerprint technicians with the opportunity to retake a print several times to ensure they are capturing the best image quality possible.

The reasons why fingerprint based criminal history background checks are so accurate are:
  1. Fingerprints are based on the fingerprint image data contained in the submission and unique to the individual. Responses to a fingerprint based inquiry are based on Postitive Identification (no multiple hits)

  2. Fingerprints provide a Biometric Search of the Criminal History Database (CHRI).

  3. Fingerprints are the industry recognized gold standard of identification - no two individuals have the same fingerprints, not even identical twins.

  4. Electronic Live Scan fingerprinting also elminates errors and multiple hits associated with name checks and ensures the accuracy of the background check.
