A Warning to All Live Scan Customers

Trust only experienced Live Scan ProvidersNot all Live Scan facilities are the same!

In California, fingerprinting must be done by certified rollers or qualified law enforcement personnel. A certified roller must submit to a State and Federal level background check to become Department of Justice (DOJ) certified.

Certifications can be revoked or suspended.  AAA Live Scan recommends customers look for the Certificate issued by the Fingerprint Rolling Certification Program (FRCP). This signifies that there is a certified roller at that place of business. Is the person taking your fingerprints a certified roller? 

Many mailbox-type stores offer fingerprinting services. They may offer Live Scan services. Make sure that the certified roller is the one processing your fingerprints. To eliminate the risk of non-certified prints, poor quality prints and data security issues, it is a good practice to visit a Live Scan provider that specializes in Live Scan technology and not office supplies or mail handling. 

Some Live Scan providers offer discounts to increase volume. Volume is good for the Live Scan company but may not be good for you. Saving a few dollars on your fingerprints to only have them fail could cost you time and money. 

AAA Live Scan offers certified DOJ Live Scan fingerprinting services with offices in Carlsbad, Mission Valley and Escondido. FBI Fingerprinting also available as well as Mobile Live Scans anywhere in Southern California. We used the latest digital Live Scan technology for fast, reliable and accurate processing.
