What is LiveScan?

LiveScan is an automated background check process that requires digitized fingerprints. The process is totally ink free. The fingerprints are electronically transmitted to the statewide criminal database at the Department of Justice (DOJ) in a matter of seconds, instead of days normally required to send hard copy fingerprint cards through the mail. The DOJ LiveScan provides reports with detailed information on California convictions based on a fingerprint match. Anyone applying for certain types of employment or licensing may be required to be LiveScanned.

The background check is solely intended for determining an individual's employability, promotability, and or acceptability as a provider of public services.

Others requiring LiveScan Services may include but not limited to: Teachers, Daycare Employees or Home Daycare Providers, Elder Care Givers, Nurses, Doctors, Coaches, Foster Parents, Adoptive Parents, Security Guards, etc.

Additionally, those applying for licensing as a Realtor, Stock Broker, Attorney, Pharmacist, Psychologist, MFT, LCSW, Driving Instructor, New/Used Vehicle Dealer or Salesperson, or any other vehicle industry related occupation licensed by the DMV, may require the use of this service.
