Livescan – Appointment Only Fee Background and Rolling

Live Scan technology replaces the process of recording an individuals fingerprint patterns through a rolling process using ink. Rolled ink became smudged through handling and mailing causing the prints to become illegible. This also slowed down the process of the criminal background clearance to a period of weeks or months. The Live Scan process gets results to the employer or licensing agency within days. The DOJ also coordinates forwarding the fingerprints to the FBI if required.
