At Your Live Scan Appointment:
The Live Scan Operator will enter your information from the submission form & capture the fingerprint images. The captured information is immediately transmitted to the Department of Justice over a data line.
The Live Scan Operator does not process the applications. The fingerprints are forwarded to the Department of Justice. If the applicant has not heard from their agency within 30 days, they should have their agency file an inquiry with the Department of Justice. The Visalia Police Department does not have access to live scan records. Only the applicant or applicant's employer may contact DOJ.
If you are returning to be re-printed due to a DOJ or FBI rejection, you must bring a new form & a copy of the rejection notice with you. If you do not have a copy of the rejection notice with you, you will be re-charged the applicable fees. With the copy of the rejection notice, no additional fees will be charged.
What You Need to Bring:
$14 - Visalia Police Department (processing fee)
$32 - State of California Department of Justice (DOJ)
$19 - FBI Fee
Cash, personal check, MasterCard, Visa, or money orders are accepted to pay for fees. Fees vary depending on application type.

Frequently Asked Questions:
I have already had a live scan done. Do I have to be fingerprinted again? Yes, the goal of the live scan is to use the fingerprints to do the actual background check, not to obtain another set of fingerprints.
How long does the live scan process take? The average wait time to receive your results is approximately one to two weeks, depending on the flow of live scan applications to the Department of Justice. Also, the results of your criminal history check will not be sent directly to you. They will be sent to your employer, & it is up to them to contact you.
How do I check the status of my fingerprint submission? If a requesting agency does not have results yet and digital Live Scan fingerprints were submitted, you can use the automated telephone system (916-227-4557) to check on the status of your submission. You will need the following information: (1) your date of birth; and (2) the 10-digit Automated Transaction Identifier (ATI) number that appears at the bottom of the Department of Justice form requesting Live Scan fingerprint background checks. The ATI number always appears in the following sequence: 1 LETTER; 3 NUMBERS; 3 LETTERS and 3 NUMBERS (EXAMPLE: I000ABC000).
