Q & A

Q: Is fingerprinting and livescan the same?

A: With the livescan technology, we capture your fingerprints electronically and print them in ink on fingerprint cards. Livescan fingerprinting developed onto card printouts is the equivalent to ink fingerprinting. The agency that requested your ink fingerprints will be satisfied with a live scan printout on a fingerprint card such as an FD-258 card.

Live scanning does not require us to use messy ink on your hands. It is a much cleaner process with a better quality of prints.
