What is Live Scan Fingerprinting?
Live Scan Fingerprinting is a faster and more efficient way of electronically capturing fingerprints in a digitized format. It requires no ink like the old fashioned way, and makes it easier to transfer them to the Illinois State Police or even the FBI. If fingerprinting is processed using this method, any criminal history will be in your hands within a few hours if received electronically or 3-5 business days if one wants to receive them in the mail. It’s no longer messy and inaccurate, which are faults of applying ink to ones fingers.
