Electronic fingerprinting technology has replaced the rolling of fingerprints that use ink and a standard fingerprint card. This fingerprinting technology is inkless and electronically transfers images of fingerprints and personal information to the Department of Justice (DOJ) in a matter of seconds. Once completed, the results of the DOJ/FBI fingerprint check are sent electronically to the requesting agency.
We also offer mobile Live Scan Fingerprint services for companies and groups.

Access to criminal history summary records maintained by the DOJ is restricted by law to legitimate law enforcement purposes and authorized applicant agencies. However, individuals have the right to request a copy of their own criminal history record from the Department to review for accuracy and completeness. Requests from third parties are not authorized and will not be processed.
Note: Criminal history records requested for an individual’s own review cannot be used for Visa/Immigration or any foreign nation transactions. If you are seeking a background check for Visa/Immigration or any foreign nation transactions, see Visa/Immigration.
