What Is Live Scan Fingerprinting?
Live scan fingerprinting is the process of capturing fingerprints electronically with an advanced live scan machine. With live scan fingerprinting, there is no ink or card. Fingerprints are “rolled” across a glass plate and electronically scanned. It is faster, cleaner and more accurate than the old ink and roll method of fingerprint cards.
A percentage of the population have difficult to read fingerprints, which can be affected by age or exposure to certain types of work such as construction or from prolonged exposure to various chemicals. Live scan fingerprinting maximizes the quality of fingerprint images obtained, which reduces the likelihood of illegible fingerprints and will reduce the overall application processing time. The fingerprints are then submitted to the specific state or federal agency where they are processed.
