Why Ink Card Fingerprinting Services?

Written October 23rd, 2013

 

Ink Card Fingerprinting Services

Getting Your Ink Card Fingerprints Digitized
Want to get your fingerprints digitized in the national database? Receiving ink card fingerprinting service can basically be seen as part of the initial process. For such ink card fingerprinting services there are many Live Scan Biometrics industry related business and dedicated ink fingerprinting locations all across the United States that can fingerprint you. Just choose a certified and approved fingerprinting location nearest you for ink card fingerprinting services.

FD-258 Ink Fingerprint CardNow for clarification, when we speak of getting your “fingerprints digitized”; it basically means that you (the applicant) will first get fingerprinted on the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) ink card form called “FD-258.” Once fingerprinted on the ink card, you are typically required by your requesting agency to send back the ink card(s) to them. Once the requesting agency receives the ink card(s), they will convert the prints to a digitized format. The converting process is basically scanning the ink fingerprint card to an electronic image. Once the fingerprints are in an electronic digitized format they are submitted and processed through law enforcement agencies criminal databases such as the California Department of Justice (DOJ) and/or perhaps the FBI.

 

Ink Card Fingerprinting Usages

Although majority of agencies use live scan to enroll fingerprints FBI uses ink cards. Commonly known as the “blue ink card”; the demand for ink card fingerprinting continues to be strong. Ink card fingerprinting services are typically used for the following purposes:

Ink card fingerprinting services are also used by Government Agencies when an applicant's function are deemed "sensitive" and/or required by the Federal Law.

 

The Fingerprinting Process

There are different methods of fingerprinting available. First is the Standard ink cards or the ink fingerprinting cards are the standard ink fingerprinting equipment. Two types of ink cards are generally used: FD-258 and FD-249. Ink is used to record the fingerprints and the images of these prints are scanned into the system database with the help of ink cards.

The second alternative is using Live Scan. Live scan does not use ink and paper. It needs a Live Scan device to electronically capture the fingerprints and then electronically store in the system. It is also used for FBI background checks. In fact it has become an essential tool in any and all kinds of law investigations.

Both of the above mentioned methods have their own pros and cons. Ink card fingerprinting is a traditional method of the biometrics fingerprinting industry; while Live Scan on the other hand is a more modern technique with a completely digitized approach.

 

 

 

What Is & Why Live Scan?

Written October 22nd, 2013


What is Live Scan?

About Live Scan
To better understand more about Live Scan is to to simply see it as the “new way” of fingerprinting services being provided by private facilities and law enforcement agencies. It's a fingerprinting technology as well technique, which involves capturing individual fingerprints or palm prints electronically. Earlier, ink and paper were used for capturing fingerprints. The ink fingerprint impression on standard FBI Ink Cards (FD-258) were then scanned into the computer and processed and stored electronically. The Live Scan Biometrics technology has replaced this traditional fingerprint ink card method of capturing and storing fingerprints.

The Process
The main equipments required to enable the process of electronic fingerprinting can typically include the scanning device for capturing the fingerprints, a workstation PC which can either be a laptop or a desktop and a mag-strip reader for capturing the descriptive data from an applicant’s driver’s license. This technology existed from last 20 years so it is not really that “new”. However, as of lately the Live Scan Biometrics industry and its adaptation has been growing tremendously not only in the government sector but also in the private and public sectors as well.

Today, the Live Scan fingerprinting services are becoming ever more popular in law enforcement communities. Many private organizations are also using it nowadays for biometric authentication and employment background check purposes. It is effective, efficient and extremely time saving.


Why Live Scan?

Law Enforcement Agencies
Well, the majority of the law enforcement agencies have started using Live Scan for identifying individuals. When a crime is committed, the forensic team is responsible for collecting fingerprints from the crime scene. The prints obtained are then processed and check for any possible matches against the prints stored in the system with the help of Live Scan.

Live Scan in United State has been a major tool to put away many law breakers like criminals, sexual offenders, arsonists, vandals, etc. They were mainly used for purposes like criminal booking, background checks, registering civil applicants, etc. Apart from United States, Live Scan has also become an essential tool for law agencies internationally. All registered nationals of a country are registered in the Live Scan system. The matching of fingerprints can take sometimes about ten minutes. The results are rendered quickly, that is why Live Scan is deemed efficient and effective by its users. It has helped many law enforcement agencies to put bad guys behind bars.


Live Scan Fingerprinting Locations

The number of Live Scan locations in the US alone continues to grow. Live scan applicants can either “walk-in” at most fingerprinting locations or schedule for an appointment.

In California alone there are hundreds and hundreds of Live scan fingerprinting locations throughout the state; these Live Scan fingerprinting locations represent various law enforcement agencies and small business Live Scan Operators. Such Live Scan locations are listed on the Department of Justice (DOJ) website or at CA Live Scan Fingerprinting Centers, http://LiveScan-Locations.net or just simply call (888) 498-4234.




What Is Live Scan Fingerprinting?

What Is Live Scan Fingerprinting Services?

Live Scan Fingerprinting services is known as a technique and technology used by law enforcement agencies and private Live Scan Service Providers. The technology electronically captures fingerprints (and palm prints at designated agencies) without using ink and/or paper.


Behind Live Scan Fingerprinting Services

Most law enforcement agencies and Private Live Scan Service Providers across the United http://LiveScan-Classes.com | Live Scan Fingerprinting Services | 888-498-4234 | FBI-DOJ Certified & Approved | 400 Corporate Pointe, Culver City, CA 90230 | http://LiveScan-Fingerprinting.netStates use live scan fingerprinting as their primary tool to identify human individuals. Today's law enforcement agencies, in fact, need live fingerprint scanning to capture fingerprints in the most accurate way possible, which wasn't possible with ink and paper in the past.

Fingerprints and palm prints, in the past, were taken by applying ink to fingers or palms and rolling each onto a card. Although it was an effective method, it was also messy and, at times, inherently prone to capturing poorly imaged fingerprints and/or palm prints.

Live Scan Fingerprinting services are designed to “capture fingerprints and/or palm prints in a digitized format,” which allows law enforcement professionals and Private Live Scan Service Providers to immediately transmit such information to higher ranked law enforcement agencies within state and federal jurisdictions; in most cases the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI).

As the process is clean, fast and effective, many law enforcement agencies and Private Live Scan Service Providers now more or less and/or have Live Scan fingerprinting devices at their facilities. Digitized fingerprints and/or palm prints are essentially “ready to use” as soon as they're captured; thanks to that, responses to criminal history reports can be processed much faster than they were in the past.

Live Scan fingerprinting is considered the fastest and accurate way to provide background checks and other legal services for individuals.

Live Scan Fingerprinting – The applications
Live Scan fingerprinting services are used in many applications within law enforcement, including criminal booking, criminal and civilian background checks, sexual offender registrations and civil applicants.

Many modern Live Scan fingerprinting services can provide results in as little as 72 hours following the initial transmission of results. Thanks to this, applicants, in particular, can quickly receive background check results for employment; visa clearances, certification/licensing and even foreign adoption from Live Scan locations.

Live Scan fingerprinting, as a result, is considered the fastest and accurate way to provide background checks and other legal services for individuals.

As an example, fingerprints captured through Live Scan fingerprinting are “converted” into fingerprint image data. This data is unique to the individual themselves, which provides law enforcement agencies a guaranteed positive identification of an individual, thanks to the accuracy of such fingerprints.

Fingerprints (and sometime palm prints) taken from Live Scan locations also provide what's known as a Biometrics Search resource for criminal history databases. This allows law enforcement and other approved agencies to immediately find information about criminal offenders when requested.

Perhaps the most important benefit of Live Scan fingerprinting is the sheer accuracy of the process. Electronic Live Scan fingerprinting merely eliminates the trouble with errors and multiple hits associated with a single name.

People who need nearby live scan locations to convert their fingerprints and/or palm prints have many options to start the process. Today's technology makes Live Scan as simple as getting your prints manually printed. Live Scan fingerprinting services like ours are proud to help make that happen.
