Live Scan Fingerprinting

Live Scan


The Identix TouchPrint Live Scan workstation is a fingerprint system that produces records by electronically scanning and capturing rolled fingerprints. The electronic fingerprints will be transmitted directly to the State Department of Justice with an anticipated three to five working days response period. The requesting agency will receive electronic notification of applicant background data. The Tuolumne County Superintendent of Schools does not receive applicant data for anyone other than TCSOS employee candidates.

All Live Scan fingerprinting services are by appointment only. Please book an appointment by using our fingerprint appointment scheduler below.

No. For your privacy protection, personal background information cannot be shared between agencies. The Department of Justice requires each applicant to be re-fingerprinted by each employing agency.
