A Live Scan is a way to take fingerprints, which are then digitalized and transmitted directly to the Department of Justice (DOJ) then checks the fingerprints against known criminal history records. A response (criminal history or no criminal history) is then sent to the agency requesting the Live Scan. If an applicant has no criminal history a response should be sent from the DOJ to the requesting agency in approximately 3 to 7 days. Occasionally it can take longer.
