Frequently Asked Questions



What are the Fingerprinting Fees?
Fees associated with getting live scanned are mostly designed by the Illinois State Police and the FBI and depend on the purpose/nature of the application. These costs are for the processing of the prints and running them through the various state and federal agencies.

What will you need to bring when you receive live scanning?
The prospective employer or the agency requesting the background check provides a form to the applicant. The applicant brings the completed form to a live scan facility approved by the Illinois State Police. All applicants must provide valid identification at the time of the live scanning.

Who is required to be live-scanned?
Individuals who are applying for certain job positions and licenses are required to go through this process as part of a background check and as a condition of their employment.

What is the process?
The prospective employer or requesting agency to take to the live scan facility gives applicants a form. The live scan operator will input this information provided on the form along with the applicant’s fingerprints into a special software program that will transmit this information to the Illinois State Police and the FBI. The entire process takes less than 10 min’s and in most cases you will receive your results in 24 to 48 hours.

Why should a background check be conducted using fingerprints instead of the traditional method of name and social security number?
Background checks using modern automated fingerprinting identification systems, such as live scan, have an error rate of less than 1% and that is why the Illinois State Police and the FBI have required applicants to use this process. Name based background checks have proven to be ineffective and have a record of false reporting and false hits. Two individuals can have the same name, but no two individuals will have the same fingerprints
