Experience the Westland Difference
Live scan fingerprinting is a process used mainly by government agencies to capture fingerprints with a live scan fingerprint machine. This inkless fingerprint machine is usually attached to a computer or laptop to process the live scan.
Live scan fingerprinting is a lot better than traditional ink fingerprinting, which was formerly used as the primary form of fingerprinting. With ink fingerprinting, you dip your fingers in black ink and press them against a paper. Your fingerprint is then scanned and uploaded to the system. This process has lots of quality issues and is not very accurate.
