Do you need a copy of your FBI fingerprint criminal history report NOW and not two months from now? If you don’t have time to wait a month or two for the FBI to process FD-258 ink fingerprint cards, then Dallas Live Scan Fingerprinting can help you receive your report within a couple of days! We are experienced and certified in ink and live scan fingerprinting and we are a preferred live scan vender for an approved FBI Channeler that has been in business more than 25 years.
Dallas Live Scan Fingerprinting can help you obtain an authentic hard copy (copy proof, tamper proof) FBI criminal history report by digital live scan electronic transmission so that you don’t have to wait an unreasonable length of time to receive your report. The FBI manually processes FD-258 fingerprint cards sent in from all over the country so because of their enormous daily workload, it can take them up to two months to generate a criminal history report to you. When we transmit your fingerprints via live scan electronically, the FBI’s computer system runs your fingerprints against their criminal databases without the need for manual processing, thus significantly shortening the turnaround time for you to receive your report (a day or two vs. a month or two).
When time is of the essence, our digital live scan procedure is your best option!
Some of the most common reasons for obtaining an FBI criminal history report are for:
- Personal review to ensure accurate information reporting or to review prior to applying for job positions that will require a criminal history report.
- Foreign travel or international student visas or work visas.
- To establish residency and live in another country.
- Attorney requests or for court related matters.
- To challenge errors and inaccurate information.
Background of Live Scan Fingerprinting:
As a result of legislation passed in 1997, the Department of Justice (DOJ) has developed the automated background check process which requires digitized fingerprints (“Live Scan”). Digitizing the fingerprints enables the electronic transfer of fingerprint images to the DOJ and the FBI’s CJIS Division.
This service is provided in accordance with U.S. Departmental Order 556-73, under regulatory authority of 28CFR16.30-34. The Departmental Order states that an individual may obtain a copy of his or her FBI criminal identification record for review and correction purposes, to challenge the information on record, for court-related matters, or to meet requirements to live, work or travel in a foreign country.
Your fingerprints are electronically transmitted to an approved FBI Channeler, in business for more than a quarter of a century, for a complete search of FBI criminal history records through the FBI’s CJIS Division. Your personal criminal history report will encompass arrest records from all 50 states and over 3,000 counties across the United States.
Your FBI Criminal Report will be printed on copy-proof blue paper to prevent fraudulent changes or modifications. One printed copy of your personal criminal history report is included with each order. For a small additional fee, extra copies can be requested when you place your order. FBI security standards require FBI Channelers to purge all FBI criminal report information after it has been delivered to you. Because of these guidelines, additional copies of an old report cannot be ordered but you can always resubmit fingerprints again at any time in the future for a new report.
FBI criminal history reports may be submitted to the U.S. Department of State in order to obtain an Apostle service and/or Authentication Certificate. Please visit the U.S. Department of State website at www.state.gov/m/a/auth/ for more information and instructions.
The FBI Channeler will manage your request in complete confidence, and your personal information is always secure. We transmit your fingerprints through a secured network to the FBI Channeler. At no time will Dallas Live Scan Fingerprinting or the FBI Channeler have access to review your confidential FBI criminal history report – ONLY YOU will be able to view your report.
FBI regulations require that:
Any person requesting a live scan fingerprint criminal history report transmitted through an FBI Channeler must be a U.S. citizen or a lawful permanent resident of the U.S.
You may not request an FBI report transmitted through an FBI Channeler for employment and/or licensing purposes within the United States. This type of request should be coordinated with the appropriate state identification bureau (or state police) for the correct procedures, which normally requires fingerprint card submission. Additionally, Dallas Live Scan Fingerprinting is certified to fingerprint by ink on fingerprint cards as requested for any state application (all 50 states), Immigration, and most reasons that ink fingerprinting is required.
PLEASE NOTE: We cannot process live scan fingerprinting for state specific processes such as, but not limited to: Concealed handgun licensing or renewal (CHL), teaching certificates, real estate licensure, insurance licensure, mortgage licensure, nursing licensure, or for any other professional licensure. Live scan fingerprinting may not be transmitted from state to state for professional or job licensing requirements. We can provide ink based fingerprinting on fingerprint cards where live scan transmission is not accepted. It can be a bit confusing at times so just call us at (214) 529-8157 to discuss your requirements and to see how we can help you today!
Disclaimer: Our highly trained staff is able to maximize the quality of fingerprint images obtained on our technically advanced state-of-the-art live scan equipment, which significantly reduces the likelihood of transmitting illegible fingerprints.
Poor quality fingerprints may be rejected by the FBI and even an experienced fingerprint technician can have a difficult time obtaining legible fingerprints on some individuals. A small percentage of the population has hard to read fingerprints, which can be affected by age or exposure to certain work conditions, such as construction or harsh cleaning chemicals. Work worn fingers with faded skin texture, dry skin, allergic conditions, or low ridge detail can make fingerprints much more difficult to scan. This is rare but when fingerprints are rejected due to these types of issues, we do not offer refunds. We can, however, offer discounted resubmissions with the ultimate goal of gaining FBI acceptance of your fingerprints. We maintain a 99% pass rate so in most cases, we do not have these issues. We use fingerprint ridge enhancing solutions to help maximize fingerprint image clarity.
