"LiveScan" refers to the use of a computer-based device which directly reads the fingerprint patterns of a subject. The prints are collected into an electronic medium from a person's fingers rather than being read from a rolled ink card. The fingerprint image, along with the demographic information about the subject, is immediately transmitted electronically to a central data-base for print comparison. Live-Scan results are usually returned within 72 hour


Effective July 1, 2005, Penal Code section 11077.1 mandates the Department of Justice only accept electronically-transmitted fingerprint images from regulatory entities performing background investigations of applicants. FD-258 fingerprint cards will not be submitted after July 1, 2006.


The fees are set up by the CA DOJ by the level of service requested by the agency requesting the livescan. .

CSU East Bay Police also charges $20 aside from your livescan DOJ fee as a service fee. 

For more information, check with the agency (employer) requesting your fingerprints. (We do not provide LiveScan applications for non-csueb applicants.)
