FINGERPRINTING AND LIVE SCAN

WHAT IS LIVE SCAN?

The Butte County Sheriff’s Office offers Live Scan fingerprint services to the public for the purposes of pre-employment. Live Scan has the ability to digitally transmit your fingerprints to the California State Department of Justice. You may also have your fingerprints produced on a hard copy, which you or your employer can mail to the necessary agency.

When an applicant wishes to use the Live Scan service, he or she will need to provide a current and valid California Driver License or California Identification Card. Also accepted are passports, out-of-state driver licenses, military ID cards, and IDs from the Mexican Consulate. The applicant must also produce a "Request for Live Scan Service" form. Live Scan forms are provided by the requesting agency; the Sheriff’s Office does NOT provide Live Scan forms. The Live Scan operator will enter information from the submission form and digitally capture the fingerprint images. The captured information is immediately transmitted to the Department of Justice.

WHAT ARE THE LIVE SCAN FEES?

There are many reasons for citizens to obtain Live Scan services. Fees for these services can vary, and depend on the purpose of the Live Scan.

Ink fingerprinting, also known as hard card prints, is provided by the Butte County Sheriff’s Office. Typically, the requesting agency provides the fingerprinting cards, however, we will provide fingerprint cards upon request with paid fingerprinting services. Ink card service costs $17 per card.
