Live Scan Fingerprinting
ABOUT LIVE SCAN
Live scan fingerprinting is the process of capturing fingerprints electronically with our advanced Live Scan machine. With Live Scan fingerprinting, there is no ink or card. Your fingerprints are “rolled” across a glass plate and scanned. It is faster, cleaner and more accurate than the old ink and roll method. This is the preferred technique and technology used by law enforcement agencies and private facilities to capture fingerprints and palm prints electronically, without the need for the more traditional method of ink and paper. In the United States, most law enforcement agencies, security companies, hospitals, and child care centers require live scan fingerprinting of all employees prior to starting work. Turn around times with electronic fingerprinting are much faster, as such employers can get through the hiring process faster and more cost effective.
