What is Live Scan Fingerprinting?
Live Scan is an inkless electronic fingerprinting captured at a computer (digitizing). Applicant fingerprints are electronically transmitted to the designated state and federal law enforcement 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. In many states actual ink fingerprinting is still required.
Digitized fingerprint images enables Biometric Live Scan service providers such as those members of the National Live Scan Association (NLSA) to electronically transmit fingerprints to the CAL-DOJ, FDLE and/or other government agencies in a matter of just a few seconds; thus eliminating the need of sending hard copies through snail mail. And if requested, these government law enforcement agencies will also forward Live Scan data to the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI).
