What to Bring

  • A “Request for Livescan Service” form is mandatory. This form is provided by the agency requiring you to be fingerprinted. Please fill out the form prior to arriving. 
  • A government issued picture I.D., such as a driver’s license, passport, or military I.D. Other forms of identification may be accepted in accordance with Department of Justice regulations. Identification must be valid and current.


Your fingerprints are transmitted by the LiveScan Unit directly to the Department of Justice for the purpose of checking your background. The results are then sent from the Department of Justice directly to the agency you printed for.  In most cases, the results from the Department of Justice come back within 72 hours. Due to various reasons, results can be delayed. Please be advised this process may take up to 30 days or more.
