FAQ about Livescan Fingerprinting

What is the Live Scan Fingerprinting Process?
The Livescan Operator will enter your information from the Live Scan Request Form into the computer and capture your fingerprint images. The captured information is immediately transmitted to the California Department of Justice (DOJ) over a secured data line. The Livescan Operator will then give you two (2) copies of the Livescan Request Form after the prints are taken. Return one (1) of those copies to the agency that has requested the Livescan. The other copy is for your records.

I have been fingerprinted before with a different Agency/Employer. My prints are in the System. May I use those results?
No. The Department of Justice requires that each applicant be re-fingerprinted with every new application for employment. For your privacy and protection, personal background information cannot be shared between agencies.

May I get Live Scan Fingerprinting done at a different agency?
YES. You may go to any Live Scan agency that can transmit to the Department of Justice, electronically.

May I get a copy of my fingerprints?
No. We do not print copies of the fingerprints; no hardcopy is supplied.

What should I do if I get a rejection notice?
If you had your Live Scan done with our agency, contact us or walk-in so that we can re-take your fingerprints. Bring the Rejection Notice and the new, completed Live Scan Request Form. THERE WILL BE NO ADDITIONAL FEE FOR THIS RE-SUBMISSION.
