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).

The reasons why fingerprint based criminal history background checks are so accurate are:
