Live Scan Locations

Special Website Update

All Live Scan fingerprinting services are “Essential Critical Infrastructure Workers” in COVID-19.

Text of Governor’s Executive Order N-52-20

As such, the DOJ is implementing a new fingerprint capture method for Live Scan sites called “FLATS on APPS” in order to reduce the amount of time and physical contact between the applicant and the live scan operator while continuing to provide fingerprint based background checks to California citizens in need of employment, licensing or certification. FLATS on APPS is a fingerprint capture capture method that allows the live scan device to submit flat impressions of an applicant’s fingerprints rather than rolled impressions.

Attention: Do not enter any live scan facility if you have any COVID-19 symptoms (fever, cough, trouble breathing, etc.), are awaiting the results of a COVID-19 test, or have been advised to self-quarantine.

Best Practices for Live Scan Sites During the COVID-19 Outbreak

Below is a location search where Live Scan fingerprinting services are available to the public. This search is updated as additional information is received. However, applicants are encouraged to contact the Live Scan providers in advance to verify their current operating hours, fees, etc.

IMPORTANT PLEASE READ
  • Government fees are required for the State (DOJ) and Federal (FBI) level criminal history record checks. Additional fees may also be required (e.g., license or certification fees). For a list of current fee charges, please go to Applicant Fingerprint Processing Fee, pdf
  • Locations identified by BNR (Billing Number Required) provide live scan services only to applicants with agency billing numbers identified on their Live Scan forms. These sites may collect rolling fees only ­ they do not collect any other fees.
  • Rolling fees vary from location to location and cover only the operator's cost for rolling the fingerprint images.
  • Applicants must present valid photo identification to the Live Scan Operator. Expired identification cards will not be accepted.

If your agency/business would like to be included in the Attorney General's Website search of Public Applicant Live Scan Sites, please send your request by e-mail to: livescansupport@doj.ca.gov. Your information will be posted within 30 days after your Private Service Provider application is approved. The process to become a Private Service Provider will take 8 to 12 weeks from receipt of a complete and accurate application. This time frame does not include obtaining your fingerprint roller certificate.
