Fingerprinting

For information on the applicant live scan fingerprinting service, call (657) 278-2904.

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 card.
