WHAT IS LIVE SCAN? HOW DOES IT WORK?
Live scan refers to the use of a computer-based device which reads the fingerprint patterns of a subject directly from the subject's fingers. Therefore, the prints are collected into an electronic medium from a "live" person's fingers rather than being read from an inked hard card.
