Employers Choice Screening’s Live Scan Fingerprinting is a fingerprinting technique implemented by law enforcement agencies and private organizations to search for any criminal activity nationwide. Information is captured electronically by either fingerprints or palm prints; therefore, eliminating the need for the traditional ink and paper process.
Due to increased requests by both federal and state legislation to utilize fingerprinting for certain industries (i.e. elderly healthcare, childcare, and banking institutions), Employers Choice Screening has partnered with a Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) authorized channeling agency to provide this Live Scan Fingerprinting service to our clients.
Applicant fingerprints are captured through the use of FBI-certified Live Scan devices. Live Scan Fingerprinting operators at our approved nationwide locations manage the collection and submission of the fingerprint records. Results are returned promptly within 24 – 48 hours in most situations.
Every applicant record (demographic data and fingerprint images) is sent to the FBI as an automated digitized request. Once received by the FBI, applicant fingerprint images are compared against the FBI’s known criminal fingerprint database to determine any criminal activity.
Employers Choice Screening adheres to the following FBI channeling mandate:
- Obtain contracts with the authorized recipients of background check results
- Obtain authorization/approval from the FBI
- Receive non-criminal justice applicant fingerprint submissions
- Ensure fingerprint submission are properly and adequately completed
- Electronically forward fingerprint submissions to the FBI’s Criminal Justice Information Services Division (CJIS)
- Receive electronic record check results for dissemination to authorized recipients and/or their approved hiring agencies
- Comply with the guidelines set forth by the FBI’s Criminal Justice Information Services Division (CJIS) for the security and integrity of criminal history record information (CHRI)
