Background checks are increasingly being used for all types of work positions and credentials. These include teachers, nurses, doctors, pharmacists, notaries, real estate licenses, foster parents, caregivers, security guards,stock brokers and many more.
Every applicant needs to bring three copies of a “request for live scan” form. This will normally be supplied by the requesting agency or employer. In addition a valid ID such as driver’s license is required. Payment is also required. (see fees section)
Live scan fees can be paid by cash, check or credit card.
The live scan fee is broken down into a rolling fee of $22 , and a fee transferred to the DOJ. This may vary according to the type of background check, but typically is $32 to the DOJ and $17 to the FBI. The second fee may sometimes be covered by the requesting agency, in which case they would have their own billing number printed on the form.
Each live scan is only good for the particular requesting agency and for one time. This is to prevent results being transferred from one agency to another and to ensure that the results will be up to date.
The results are only sent to the requesting agency.
Live Scan Fingerprinting
Live Scan is an inkless electronic fingerprinting technique. The applicant’s fingerprints are digitally scanned and then electronically transmitted to the Department of Justice and FBI.
This is done in order to undergo a criminal background check, often as a condition for employment. Results are usually sent within 72 hours to the licensing agency or employer.
