Live Scan Fingerprinting

Federal Government Background Checks in San Diego

Live Scan San Diego

Live Scan fingerprinting is an inkless electronic fingerprint captured at a computer (digitizing). Applicant fingerprints are electronically transmitted to the governing state and federal agencies in order to complete a criminal background check. Live Scan technology replaces the slow and "archaic" fingerprinting process of recording fingerprint patterns through a rolling process using ink and paper. This relatively new technology allows criminal background checks to be processed usually within 72 hours making it a quciker process than regular ink fingerprinting. Live-scan technology is sometimes referred to as: life scan, life-scan, lifescan, electronic fingerprinting and digital fingerprinting.

Ink Fingerprinting

Ink Fingerprinting is typically required for out-of-state and out-of-country purposes. Live Scan fingerprinting can be used to check your criminal history file at the California “State Level”. However, in order to process your “National Level” criminal history summary, you MUST submit an FD-258 ink fingerprint card to the FBI CJIS Division.
