The California Department of Justice (DOJ) provides an automated service for criminal background checks that may be required as a condition of employment, licensing, certification, foreign adoptions or VISA/Immigration clearances. Here is information for individuals needing to submit fingerprints for background checks.

Beginning July 1st, 2005, all applicant fingerprint submissions to the DOJ must be transmitted electronically. Live Scan digital submissions provide the quickest way to submit and process background checks.

Applicants must get instructions and the forms required for fingerprinting services from their agency requiring their criminal history background check. Since different forms are used, individuals should be receiving fingerprint applications from the agency that is requesting their prints.
