What is Live Scan?

Live scan is a biometric technology that permits digitally scanned fingerprints to be electronically transmitted directly to the California Department of Justice and Federal Bureau of Investigation instead of using ink and a fingerprint card. This relatively new technology allows criminal background checks to be processed usually within 72 hours. This livescan technology is sometimes referred to as: life scan, biometric fingerprinting, electronic fingerprinting and digital fingerprinting.

Accurate Live Scan Fingerprint Submissions Guaranteed!

Alive Scan utilizes only top-of-the-line biometric equipment to assure the best possible fingerprint results. When selecting a live-scan service location, it’s also important to choose an experienced fingerprint roller to avoid rejections and lengthy delays. Many live scan biometric service providers are inexperienced which end up delaying the applicant licensing or employment and also may cause the applicant to be re-fingerprinted! Since the completion of your live-scan is so urgent, you may want to think twice before going to some random employee at a UPS Store, FedEx Store or local postal shop. Whether you need our services for employment, certification or licensing purposes, you will find our electronic fingerprint service to be top notch and our customer service to be unsurpassed. We are so confident in our ability to capture quality fingerprints, we guarantee your submissions will be accepted and successfully processed the first time!

Approved Law Enforcement Alternative to Ink Fingerprinting

Alive Scan is certified by the California Department of Justice (DOJ) for fingerprinting as well as ink fingerprinting on “hard card” paper. Many of our applicants are originally instructed to go to their local police department or sheriff office to be fingerprinted. However, California law enforcement migrated away from providing a fingerprint service to the public in 2005. Alive Scan is now San Diego’s trusted alternative for live-scan fingerprinting. Our facility is often referred to by local police departments and sheriff offices.
