Our delivery method for your private info is more secure

Important Info Every Customer Needs to Know!

If you are an individual seeking livescan service and book service at a shipping store, you are required to visit a 3rd party website and supply all your personal data - name, date of birth, social security number and credit card.  This site forces you to accept cookies, the means by which data is harvested.  At least one of these operators is not even a U.S. company.  We supply a higher level of security and more personalized service.  Your data is collected one-on-one by our technician and put into the program that delivers it directly to the FDLE by secured server, same day. No waiting for batch uploads. No third party website getting your sensitive personal info.  


If you are an employer, you should never accept the cookies on behalf of your candidate or tender an employee's personal data to any entity but the State of Florida. Willingly providing data to a 3rd party website can expose your company to unnecessary liability. Let us work directly with your candidates with a safe and secure method of gathering their personal stats. You save time and are not in the middle, supplying the data. If you as an employer have questions about compliance or navigating the AHCA web portal, call us and we will help you.

What is Fingerprinting / LiveScan?

Live Scan is inkless electronic fingerprinting. The applicant’s fingerprints are electronically transmitted to the FBI & FDLE with the required completion of a criminal record check. We have easy Fingerprint service throughout the six area counties.  


other livescan providers are listed on the FDLE provider website, CCW is not a service we are allowed to perform. You must present yourself at a sheriff's office or the tax collector for this service. Do not pay your fees online; the tax collector will only provide the full service including

collecting your fees. Make an appointment on the tax collector website to complete the process there. 

Getting your fingerprints taken is easy!

We make the process so easy and simple it takes just a few minutes. You are in and out of our doors. We can complete fingerprinting for individuals looking for one-time screenings for a real estate license or for large employers such has hospitals, school systems, assisted living facilities and nursing homes. You can walk into our office anytime during business hours or you can fill out the contact us section to make an appointment.


What do you need to bring with you?


1. Drivers License (or Gov't Issued ID)

2. Social Security Card (or 2nd form of ID -  but you must know your Social Security Number even if you don't have your card)

3. ORI/OCA Number (Not everybody has an OCA - if you have been given a Livescan Request form, it is already noted)


Before the electronic fingerprinting process can start an individual must have have two specific codes, which can be obtained from your area's background screening office or HR Department: ORI Code: This is the Department Originating Agency Identifier Number, which tells the Florida Department of Law Enforcement the purpose of the background check. OCA Code: This is the Department Live Scan or Electronic Originating Agency Case Number, which tells the governing agency who (the company name) is requesting the screening.

Update your Records or be Fined by the State


**Failure to screen and re-screen employees including contract staff is a violation of state law and subject to a fine of $500 per person.**


All employees are required by law to be screened and re-screened every 5 years or sooner if there is a break in service. This must be done through your governing agency. Because of the livescan screening law change to level 2 back in August of 2010, there was a phase in period. The phase in period ended in July 2015!

AHCA and other government agencies are on a hunt to audit employers with out of date records. You don't want to be like a few of our customers who have called us too late and have had to pay steep fees to get their employees in compliance. Remember, when you hire or rehire employees that used to work for you, make sure to re-screen them if there was a lapse in employment greater than 90 days. 

If you should have any questions or want to know what the state is looking for please use us as resource!!
