Live Scan Fingerprinting Services
Live Scan Services Now Offered
The City of Monrovia Human Resources Department provides fingerprinting services via Live Scan.
What is Live Scan?
Live Scan is an automated inkless fingerprinting process. Fingerprints are electronically transmitted to the California Department of Justice (DOJ) for processing. The DOJ conducts a search of their statewide criminal database for convictions. If a Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) clearance is required, the prints are sent through the FBI’s nationwide criminal database as well. Once the fingerprints have been processed, a report from the DOJ is mailed to the requesting agency. When and how the requesting agency receives the report is dependent upon how quickly the DOJ is able to process the fingerprints.
Why is Live Scan Necessary?
Live Scan fingerprinting is often a requirement of employers in both the private and public sectors as part of a background investigation when a candidate is being considered for employment. Those working with children such as teachers, childcare providers, coaches, foster and/or adoptive parents, etc., in addition to medical personnel such as nurses, doctors and elder care givers are required to be fingerprinted. Others may require fingerprinting for licensing purposes such as notary publics, realtors, and attorneys.
