Livescan FAQ's

Below are some of the frequently asked questions regarding the Livescan process.

What is the process?
  • The DOJ uses arrests and corresponding disposition information reported by sheriff, police and probation departments, district attorney offices, and the courts to compile records of arrest and prosecution.
  • Reporting is only on crimes committed within the State of California and is based on fingerprint submission only.
  • Administrators must register in the Cal North registration application, print the Live Scan form, find a Capital Live Scan vendor, and then go  to be fingerprinted.
  • Pass/Fail results are entered into spreadsheets by Capital Live Scan. Any result from the DOJ is a Fail. Blank return from DOJ is a pass. 
  • Cal North COR enters the pass/ fail result in Cal North registration application
How long does it take to get results after completing?
  • Cal North can receive results as quick as 3-5 days after getting fingerprinted, however there can be delays that can delay this to a few weeks. 
  • With a higher volume of results, this process can take longer than expected as these results are manually entered by livescan.
