2. Will I be asked to provide my Social Security Number?
Answer: Yes. The Department of Justice has strict policies and procedures when it comes to the care and safety of citizens’ (applicants’) personal information. A reputable Live Scan service provider, by law, must adhere to these rules.
All Live Scan systems are to be stored in a locked and secure area. Fingerprint records may not remain on a Live Scan system beyond 40 days — they must be purged. Applicant Live Scan forms must be stored in a secure, locked area. After a designated period of time, the expired forms must be shredded — not dumped in the trash — and disposed of.
