3. How does the electronic fingerprinting process actually work?
In the traditional method of fingerprinting, ink is applied to each of your fingers which are then “rolled” across a fingerprint card to obtain your prints. With electronic fingerprinting, there is no ink or card. Your fingerprints are “rolled” across a glass plate and scanned. It is faster and cleaner than the traditional method. Electronic fingerprinting reduces the likelihood of illegible fingerprints and will reduce the overall application processing time.

It should only take approximately 5-10 minutes.

5. How much does electronic fingerprinting cost?
The total fee charged by LIVESCAN POMPANO is based on the fee charged by the State, which varies upon the agency that requires the background check. Please contact LIVESCAN POMPANO or visit use the link below to obtain this information.
The fingerprint results are usually received by the department two to four days after your fingerprints are scanned.

6. What do I need to bring with me to the LIVESCAN POMPANO electronic fingerprinting site?
All applicants will be required to bring two (2) forms of identification to the electronic fingerprinting site on the day of scheduled fingerprinting. One of the two types of identification must bear your picture and signature such as a driver’s license, state identification card or passport. Applicants cannot be permitted to be fingerprinted without proper identification.

 What should I do if I am notified that the Florida Department of Law Enforcement or the Federal Bureau of Investigation determined my electronic fingerprints were illegible?
The electronic fingerprint scanning machines are equipped to determine if your fingerprints scanned successfully; however, if it is determined by the Federal Bureau of Investigation that your prints were not legible, we will send you a notification letter asking you to go back to the same vendor that did your initial prints and schedule a re-roll of your prints. You will be required to bring the notification letter with you as information such as the TCN (Transaction Control Number) and TCR (Transaction Control Reference) must be identified and used at the time of the reroll.

8. How long are my fingerprints valid for?
DBPR will retain results of the prints for 12 months from the date your digital fingerprints were electronically received by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. FDLE retain the prints for 180 days only. If your prints have expired at the time your application is submitted to the department, you will be required to submit new prints again.

9. Can I use my recent prints to apply for another professional license?
Per FBI regulation, your prints cannot be shared between professions or with other agencies. You are required to have separate prints for each license you are applying for, using the correct ORI

10. What happens after I get my fingerprints done using a Livescan vendor? 

The Livescan vendor will send your scanned fingerprint images to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) using the ORI number you provide to the vendor.

You do not have to do anything with your fingerprint results unless the department contacts you for additional information. 

11. How can I determine the status of my Livescan transaction?

The only identifier needed to perform the search is the Transaction Control Number (TCN) which is generated at the time the applicant information and fingerprints are captured. The "Civil Workflow Control System Transaction Status Search" is available to the public at: 

12. What happens if the fingerprint results indicate that I have a criminal history?
