Richard on How do I prepare for a live scan? "You can prepare for live scan service by following these steps:
If you have dry hands, use lotion *multiple times per day leading up to your visit.
If you have sweaty or wet hands, please notify your fingerprint technician upon check-in.
Come with clean hands. Most background check requirements no longer require ink. Live scan service technology allows us to capture your fingerprints without messy ink.
If you require ink fingerprints, do not use lotion on the day of your visit."
