We are a licensed and approved LiveScan Vendor Agency by the Illinois State Police and the FBI. LiveScan fingerprints are mainly for in state (IL) licenses.
We also do the FBI 258 Ink Cards for out of state purposes.
LiveScan fingerprinting is an inkless electronic system that is designed to capture an individual’s fingerprint images and demographic data (name, sex, race, date of birth, etc.). This is done in a digitized format that can be transmitted to the state central repository (Illinois State Police) for processing. The data is forwarded to the Illinois State Police (ISP), Bureau of Identification (BOI), to be processed by the ISP’s Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS). Once received at the ISP BOI for processing, the inquiry can then be forwarded to the FBI electronically for further processing.
Occasionally, fingerprints are still required to be obtained using ink. Out-of-State licensing and/or employment are the most common reasons individuals are required to have their fingerprints captured using ink. This is done on a FBI (FD-258) card. Click below for an example and more information on the FBI (FD-258) card.
This form is used to capture ink fingerprints in order to initiate an Illinois State Police (ISP) fingerprint-based criminal history record background check.
