Fingerprinting Locations Help

Preferred Live Scan Locations
Preferred locations provide the fastest service by electronically transmitting fingerprints to National Background Information. Preferred Live Scan Locations may provide other background check services such as passport photos and drug testing services.

Preferred Live Scan Locations are not available in all areas. Live Scan operators may contact us for information about becoming a National Background Information preferred location.

Affiliate Fingerprinting Locations
Affiliate locations can capture fingerprints on a standard FD-258 fingerprint card for submission to the FBI. Some locations will use a live scan machine to capture the fingerprints and then print the FD-258 card. Affiliate Fingerprinting Locations may provide additional background check services.

Police departments, sheriff's offices and other government agencies provide fingerprinting services to the general public. The fingerprint cards will be returned to you for submission to National Background Information.
