Live Scan Fingerprinting Service
Live scan is a way of capturing fingerprints in a digital format that gets submitted to DOJ (Department of Justice), FBI and/or any other government agency to check the criminal history of the applicant. This method of fingerprinting is inkless and allows the fingerprint technician to retake prints several times if needed to get the best quality from your fingerprints.
At PostalAnnex of Azusa, all of our staff members are certified Live Scan operators and have the proper training to ensure your experience is easy-going and done in an efficient/professional manner.

Charges for Live Scan Fingerprinting
With Live Scan, there is two separate fees. One fee is our rolling fee, which can be as low as $40ii. The other fee is for DOJ, FBI and other Government Agencies. This fee can vary depending on the Live Scan request form you bring. If there is a billing number on your form, then you are simply responsible for just the rolling fee. Some types of live scans are Government fee exempt, too.
In order for any live scan processor to give you accurate charges, they need to see the live scan requesting form and add the data in live scan device for the system to show total fees. Some agencies requiring your live scan may also know government fees (DOJ, FBI, Child Card, Fire Arm, etc.) and share with you. At that point only other variable that affect your total is rolling fees.
