Live scan is digital fingerprint submission transmitted electronically to the California Department of Justice (DOJ). Live scan is an automated service for criminal history background checks that may be required as a condition of employment, licensing, certification, foreign adoptions or VISA/Immigration clearances.
Due to Covid restrictions, Live Scan has improved into a touchless process to create a no-contact system. Also due to billing discrepancies the price has gone up per transaction for live scan from $18 to $25 in-person, however mobile methods will now be $20. Two years of accounts receivable unpaid by member clubs has led Capital Live Scan to the decision of a pay as you go model. The new model comes with more efficient software that will help Member Services track who has indeed been live scanned, who has scheduled an appointment, and who still needs to be live scanned. The following list of FAQs breaks down a lot of the new platform and the procedures that come with it for an applicant undergoing the live scan process.
Below are some of the frequently asked questions regarding the Livescan process.
Reminder: All Live Scan Fingerprinting must be done through the Portal.
